Our Lady of Lourdes’ and St. Patrick’s Catholic Women’s Leagues, along with invited guests from the Northern Region, gathered to honour Margaret Ann Jacobs on her installation as CWL National President. The evening, which began with Mass offered by Father Jim, took place at Our Lady of Lourdes Church on Tuesday, September 13, 2016. Following Mass, the women and Father Jim enjoyed a delicious Potluck supper. Margaret Ann was presented with a crystal Rosary and a Spiritual Bouquet for the Offering of the Rosary by CWL members. It was indicated that enough pledges were gathered so that four Rosaries could be offered for Margaret Ann’s intention on each day of her two year term. Father Jim offered his congratulations and support to Margaret Ann. Our parish is extremely honoured to have Margaret Ann hold such a prestigious position.
Margaret Ann was officially installed to the Presidency in August, at the National CWL Convention in Halifax. The photos below were taken in September when our own CWL members met to honour Margaret Ann.
