Dear Sisters in the League,
With a successful year behind us, let us prepare for a wonderful 2018 as we continue to give service enlightened by our theme “Inspired by the Spirit, Women Respond to God’s Call”.
There will be challenges ahead of us but we need to put our trust in the Lord. God’s Holy Spirit will renew us each day making it possible to carry out our work. He is near us when we call out to Him to help in responding to the needs of others, particularly the homeless. Hopefully we all gave of ourselves over the holiday season to those less fortunate than us. In responding to God’s love we are open to the gifts that the Holy Spirit wants to bestow on us.
As members of the League we care about people and work hard to be examples and mentors for others. By ourselves we can do nothing but turning to Jesus and Mary, they will guide us.
Thank you to all who submitted annual reports for 2017. We the diocesan officers/chairs look forward to reading and sharing the summaries of your hard work.
Meetings and plans are well underway for our May Diocesan convention. What a wonderful opportunity to come together to encourage, acknowledge and celebrate members. It is a time to listen, communicate and show our respect for one another. I am looking forward to meeting many of you at the Delta Conference Centre in Guelph, May 25-27, 2018.
I am so grateful and blessed to have the opportunity to continue my League journey with such a compassionate and dedicated sisterhood. Thank you. Please feel free to contact me any time if I can be of assistance to you.
Jesus tells us we are a light for the world. Let your light shine!
