The CWL council at St. Gerard's parish in Yorkton, Saskatchewan celebrated their 50th Anniversary on Saturday, May 23, 2015. Mass was followed by a celebration tea served on bone china cups and saucers, complete with fancy sandwiches and assorted dainties. Fellowship was enjoyed by all, with members and special guests sharing memories of many CWL events and activities. And to complete the festive anniversary celebration,our own Father Francis Hengen and his brother, Father Ed Hengen, gave guests a wonderful musical treat!
We thank our charter members, living and deceased, for beginning this legacy of faith in action; we also thank the dear priests who have been our advisors over these many years for their patience, wisdom, and encouragment; and thank you to all our members for being part of the CWL at St. Gerard’s. We look to our Mother of Good Counsel to guide us and help us as we walk together as CWL sisters into the future. One heart, one mind, one mission!
