WUCWO Day was held on Friday 13th May at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Wollongong. Mass was celebrated by Fr. Ron Peters, Dean of the Cathedral and a beautiful liturgy was prepared by Mary Smith, Diocesan International Secretary. Sixty seven people attended the luncheon that followed. Catherine McGrath, former State President of CWL New South Wales Inc., and now WUCWO Board member Australia, was the guest speaker.
Catherine spoke about the 100 year Centenary Assembly of WUCWO held last year in Jerusalem and her upcoming first meeting in Rome. A slide show presentation of the Assembly and tour, which also showed other local members, was running during lunch and her talk. Fairy Meadow branch did an excellent job as caterers which was much appreciated by those in attendance.
