Retreat Day and Spirit Alive Festival

Retreat Day at Mary Star of the Sea Gerringong

Under the guidance of Father Patrick Vaughan, Diocesan Chaplain, over 70 members gathered at Gerringong for a retreat day based on Women of the Gospel: Martha and Mary and Sitting at the Feet of Jesus. During the day we were encouraged to reflect upon which woman was representative of ourselves. There was personal prayer time in the church grounds, the Rosary and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Thank you Fr. Patrick for the preparation and presentation of such a wonderful, prayerful and reflective day which was valued by those present.

Spirit Alive Diocesan Ministry Festival

Congratulations to Bishop Peter Ingham and the organisers of this successful showcase of Diocesan Ministries.  The Catholic Women’s League had a stand in the hall of John Terry Catholic High School, Rosemeadow and were very pleased to participate in the Festival which also marked the beginning of the Year of Grace

On a cold, windy day our members travelled from Branches all over the Diocese to be a part of this event and promote the work of Catholic Women’s league. We gave out pamphlets and bookmarks, we sold items produced by members and raffle tickets fdor the New South Wales Biennial Conference to be held in September. Well done Catholic Women’s League Diocese of Wollongong.
