Our Lady’s Missionaries in the Alexandria – Cornwall Diocese

A card sent to Sr. Gwen from Miriam, CWL Alexandria -Cornwall Diocese.

I was filled with gratitude as Mary Deighan and I journeyed to St. Andrews to attend the CWL Convention in the Alexandria/Cornwall  diocese.

In 1949 our founder had asked the CWL to help support Our Lady’s Missionaries and they are still fulfilling this request.

Each year they sell roses on Mother’s day as a way of supporting us.

The women were passionate as each one shared her report of her group’s activities for the year.  As each did so, she focused on the gift of the Holy Spirit that had best inspired her.

The flavour of the area continued when the pipers played the bagpipes as we walked to the majestic  Church to celebrate the Eucharist. This was followed by enjoyable conversation and delicious food by a local caterer.
