Tea and Bazaar set for Saturday at United Church

Updates on goings on at Sacred Heart CWL in Rossland

The Rossland Sacred Heart CWL met on Oct. 6. The meeting opened with a spiritual led by Ruth Dubois which focused on a reading from Luke 10. A group discussion took place on how we can best exchange the busy “Martha” spirit for the more prayerful “Mary” spirit. The group was asked to reflect on the idea that, “Stopping is a spiritual art”.

Preparations are well underway for this years annual Fall Tea and Bazaar. As Rossland Sacred Heart no longer has a Parish Hall it was decided that the CWL would approach the United Church in Rossland to inquire about the possibility of renting their hall for the event.

So, for the first time, the Tea and Bazaasr will held in the United Church Hall. The date for the tea is Oct. 19 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. As usual there will be a bake table, country table, and fish pond. There will be several door prizes. Everyone is welcome. Proceeds from the Tea will go to the Sacred Heart Parish and to Development and Peace.

President, Alida Nesmith reported on the “Catch the Fire” workshop which she attended on Sept. 21 in Nelson.

The “Chain of Life” was held on Oct. 6 in Castlegar due to the road construction in Trail.

On Oct. 7 Ruth Dubois, a retired Nursing Instructor from Selkirk College, organized a DVD presentation at Holy Trinity in Trail and invited CWL members from the area to attend. The DVD was titled “As We Forgive” and was a documentary about the Rwandan genocide and the struggle by the people who were so wronged to forgive their perpetrators when they were released from prison and returned to their communities.

The documentary was extremely moving and a discussion followed afterward as a form of debriefing. The CWL members from Holy Trinity provided a variety of delicious snacks that were enjoyed afterward. Approximately 30 people attended and the response was very positive.

This year again the Sacred Heart CWL will host the Advent Music Celebration. Both Sacred Heart Parish choirs will perform along with the United Church Choir. Also there will be prayer and meditation which is intended to help us to realize the true meaning of Advent. The date for this event has yet to be confirmed.
