Convention is coming up quickly. For those members who cannot attend August 6th–9th in Prince Edward Island, I invite you to encourage them to watch the website! There will be much to see and the national theme, Inspired by the Spirit, Women Respond to God’s Call will be evident throughout the convention.

Members at home can still be a part of the presentations and speakers by viewing the live feed. The live feed will be provided as follows:
Monday, August 7    9:45-10:45 a.m. ADT    A Catholic Identity Crisis, Ken Yasinski
Monday, August 7    11:00-12:00 p.m. ADT    Becoming a Living Thank You, Ken Yasinski
Tuesday, August 8    9:45-10:45 a.m. ADT    Canada’s Catholic, Dr. Reginald Bibby
Tuesday, August 8    11:00-11:45 a.m. ADT    Convention Town Hall *, Donna Dunn
Wednesday, August 9    9:00-10:15 a.m. ADT    Building on Foundation, Steering Committee
Wednesday, August 9    10:30-11:15 a.m. ADT    Coady International Institute, Dr. June Webber

* The convention town hall is an interactive session for members and is part of the strategic planning that the national executive has initiated in order to examine and plan for the future of the League. I am including an instruction information sheet with this communique.

Members can form groups and view the live feed at home, at the parish office, in a parish hall or anywhere that members can access the Catholic Women’s League website. They will need Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 9, Mozilla 3.5 or Safari 4 to access the live session.

Each group should choose a recording secretary and she should register the group by e-mailing national office at [email protected] by July 31st. Instructions on how to participate interactively will be sent in confirmation to the e-mail.

This is very exciting for the national executive to be able to offer this to members so that they can have a say, and I encourage you to reach out to you diocesan counterparts throughout your province.

Let’s promote this so all members can view and hear as if they were there!
