   President's Message

February 2023


Looking to 2023

Let your light shine before men, that. they may see your good works, and. glorify your Father which is in heaven.  Matthew 5:15-16

There is nothing that contains more hope than looking at the start of a new year. Although already a month has gone by there are still many months to fill up with plans for our CWL work. Many councils are already busy with their projects while others are still formulating plans. The uncertainty that winter weather brings does slow us down but like true Saskatchewan women we continue on.

As I read through the winter issue of The Canadian League magazine, I hear the message over and over about how coming together as league sisters to work, play, and pray together, we provide a sense of purpose, belonging, and unity that only positive relationships can nurture. If we keep this plan at the heart of our councils, there should be no worries about the future of the league.

 I hear too often that councils are struggling because no one wants to take on leadership roles. If there is a desire to keep on there is a way. Each of us must take some responsibility in reminding ourselves why we felt being a member was important., why we think the league is important. We must ask ourselves some questions. “What would happen to our parish, our relationships if CWL did not exist?” “What am I doing to grow in my faith? Can CWL help me with that?” “Is it easier to pray, to serve others, seek knowledge of social justice issues on my own?” Pondering on these questions may bring clarity to your council members and through praying together provide the direction you should take.

My choice of bible verse for me provides an answer to all I do. Does what I do glorify God? For all my work for the league this has always been a resounding YES! Let it be yours as well. Together we are Catholic and Living it through all we do for God and Canada!





   President's Challenge Update

February 2023


Just a reminder of the challenge I put out to support our 75th Anniversary and our theme “Walking Together”. This will be highlighted at our Provincial Convention to be held in Saskatoon at Holy Spirit Parish on June 4th and 5th, 2023. In attendance will be our National President, Fran Lucas.

I am asking each council, in the next few months, to find some way to heighten awareness of Indigenous history and residential schools. In addition, if each council would fundraise $100.00, we could combine these funds to donate to the TRC Healing Response for our province. The fundraising money should be sent to the address below or by e-transfer (auto deposit) to Cheques should be made out to Saskatchewan Provincial Council Catholic Women’s League.

Waldheim, SK. S0K 4R0

The total of the donations will then be presented to the Bishops at our Provincial Convention.

We would also like to receive a story about the activity(s) your council found to do with your members. The stories can be sent to I can’t wait to hear the responses to the challenge. May the Holy Spirit provide you with guidance on this journey!
