CWL hosting St. Patrick’s Day tea

ROSSLAND — The Rossland Sacred Heart CWL opened the Feb. 6 meeting with a spiritual prepared by Ruth Dubois and read by Joyce Bourchier titled “The Beatitudes of our Times” which highlighted the Gospel readings of the last several weeks. (Matthew 5:1-12)  A discussion followed on which of the Beatitudes members found personally challenging or stimulating.Maureen Corrado, who heads the standing committee on community life, reported on concerns about the  protection of farmers from the release of genetically modifed seeds in our country.  Anyone interested in finding out how to go about making a stand against this was asked to go to  or to contact MP Alex Atamanenko.Many events of interest to CWL members are coming up in March. On March 1,  the DVD “A Walk to Beautiful” will be shown at OLPH. This film shows the difficult journey that begins in loneliness and shame for thousands of Ethiopian women and ends in a productive new life and hope for the future with the treatment for obstetric fistula. Ruth Dubois obtained the DVD and will set up the equipment.  On March 4, The World Day of Prayer will be held at the Presbyterian Church in Trail (see article above).The annual St. Patrick’s Day Tea has been scheduled for March 19 and Lil Karenko has accepted to convene this event.  As usual there will be a bake table.   In closing, members welcome Wilma Kunst to the CWL.
