The 97th Annual CWL National Convention Explained - Perspectives Daily

August 8, 2017
Last week, Pope Francis released his new monthly intention prayer video for the month of August. He asks us to join him in prayer specifically for artists, so that through their creativity, they can continue show us the greatness of God. Have a look:
In Atlantic Canada, the Catholic Women's League is holding it's 97th Annual National Convention in Charlottetown, PEI. Nearly 800 women are in attendance for a week of talks, meetings and of course fellowship and prayer.
The convention officially opened with Mass on Sunday night at the historic Cathedral Basilica of St. Dunstan's. In the province of PEI alone, there are close to 2300 members with a total of 35 councils that have been around since the early 20th century.
Emilie Callan caught up Irene Gallant, who is the Provincial President of the CWL, and spoke to Emillie about the purpose of the convention. Again, Emilie will be on location for the entire event to bring you coverage which is available on the website listed here.
That's all for today. Join us again on tomorrow, when we bring you more news and stories from the Perspectives of a Catholic lens.
