Thank You – 100th Anniversary Lap Quilt Challenge

On behalf of the Centenary Committee for the 100th Anniversary of The Catholic Women’s League of Canada, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the members who participated in the Lap Quilt Project.

By the giving of member’s time and talent, beautiful quilts were made and distributed across Canada to local hospices, hospitals, long term care facilities, and to police officers and firemen to provide comfort for accident victims. We share in your pride and joy knowing that the work of your hands has given comfort to so many across Canada.

During the 2017 annual national convention in Prince Edward Island, it was incredibly moving to see each provincial president carry in procession a quilt representing her provincial council during a prayer service. Following the convention, the quilts were donated to the local hospice in the host province.

Thank you
May God bless you in your continued work “For God and Canada” through the guidance of Our Lady of Good Counsel.
