CWLWelcome to Blessed Sacrament Amherstview
Catholic Women's League!

Calling all CWL Members...

On Saturday, February 4th we will be having a short meeting after the 5:15 Mass in the Church. We have one piece of business for this meeting and it is a national motion brought by national CWL. It should be short but it has to be taken at least one month before the diocesan convention. And we need an in-person quorum which is why we are holding it after Mass. We hope it can be quick and we can be done in 20 minutes.

Meetings

Our regular meetings generally follow 7 pm Mass on the second Tuesday of the month, which is a part of the spiritual portion of our meetings. Please join your sisters at Mass as we pray together. Meetings are cancelled over the summer. Note that in the winter months, meetings will be cancelled if the weather is poor. If in doubt, check this website for cancellations or call Kelly Neville (613-840-5659). Approved minutes are available at the bottom of this page.

    NEXT MEETING:
    Next General Meeting: Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 14th in the parish hall, in person and by Zoom and teleconference (phone). Please call in/link 5 minutes prior to the meeting.
