A Message from the Spiritual Advisor – Fr. Oliver Iwuchukwu CSSp

Summer behind us; fall is before us. As we stand at the intersection between summer and fall, we look back to summer, remembering the things we did and the places we visited. We also think of things left undone, and of places we wish we had visited. These must wait for another summer, three seasons away.

The season before us is a season of beauty, “when every leaf is a flower”, according to a French philosopher. As we get into it, the words of Elizabeth Lawrence, an American writer, can serve as a useful guide: Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn. Indeed, if we take time to watch the leaves, we will see then turning slowly but steadily until the world of nature is awash with colours; we will see them shrivel and fade and let go of the branches to make room for next fall’s leaves and colours. A silent reminder that we live in a world of change, and that we don’t have forever to grace our world with our presence—just like the autumn leaves.

St Paul understood this. His advice to an early Christian community and to us is: Now that we have the chance, we must work for the good of all, especially for those of the family of faith [Galatians 6:10]. And by all accounts, our Catholic Women’s League is, in a special way, our family of faith. We keep this in mind as we pray and plan and look forward to electing new officers of the League. We should not let any opportunity to serve pass us by. We don’t have forever to bloom where God has planted us.

A Message from the President – Ingrid Hart

Where has the summer gone, it is almost over! The weather was amazing, I hope you all had a great summer and that you are relaxed and invigorated to start our last quarter of the year of meetings and important upcoming events, such as our Square Dancing in September and Apple Pie making and Interfaith in October. Please plan on attending these fun activities so we can meet, socialize and share in the sisterhood of our council.

I would like to thank each and every one of you for your tremendous support of our food bank project that was so successful. The food items are waiting to be transported to Iqaluit.

Our Heritage Day Festival was also very successful because of your generous donations and hard work. You have enabled us to continue to support our many charities thus we have made a difference in peoples’ lives.

It is that time again when we will be preparing to choose a new executive for our council. It is an important time in our calendar as we pray and nominate who would be best to make decisions on our behalf, so that our St. Joseph’s Council will continue to be a thriving and successful council.

If you are nominated and a member of our elections committee calls you, please recite this prayer below once again, before you make your decision and let the Holy Spirit guide your YES to serve “God and Canada”.

Let us Pray: Mary my Mother, Our Lady of Good Counsel, filled with the Holy Spirit, counsel us through your motherly love that we may give our “yes” in total trust, just as you gave your “yes”.

Mary, as you instructed the servants at the wedding feast in Cana to “do whatever He tells you”, let us also hear these words of instruction from you, so we may serve Jesus in His Kingdom here on earth through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I look forward to seeing you.

Ingrid

A Message from Treasurer – Marla Tanuan

Autumn is now upon us, dear sisters. Let us take a few moments to thank our Lord for the wonderful summer we just had. If we but ponder our surroundings and count the abundance of our blessings, our souls can't help but feel the overwhelming love Our Father has for us.

One thing we can certainly be thankful for was the wonderful weather Our Lord provided on the 2016 Highland Creek Heritage Day Festival which was held on June 18th. He also blessed us with such hard-working volunteers, both within and outside of the League, without whom we would not have had a successful fundraiser. Special thanks once again go to our dear Brothers, the Knights of Columbus.

This year's Heritage Day Fundraiser yielded net proceeds of $5,414.19, a tad higher than our Budgeted projection. A summary of the proceeds per table are as follows:

Bake Table $1,149.15 Plant Sale $1,051.50 International - Caribbean $494.10 Raffles $487.00 International - India $460.00 Tea Room $850.00 International - Italy $103.00 Treasure Table $687.05 International - Philippines $307.85 Vendors $330.00

And in case you're wondering which charities are benefiting from this fundraiser, here is a list of our charities:

Sisters of Life Chalice Covenant House Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation St. Francis Table Mater Care International Society of St. Vincent de Paul The Spiritans Toronto Right to Life Association Refugee-Outreach Committee Homeward Family Shelter (Juliette's Place) Coady International Good Shepherd Ministries Catholic Missions In Canada Save A Family Plan Development & Peace Sleeping Children around the World Bishop Bernard F. Pappin Memorial Bursary Fund Missionaries of Mary Mother of the Poor St. Michael's Scholarship Fund Hope for Children Foundation Scholarship Fund

I thank the Lord for having used us as His instruments in providing for the various needs of His people. Truly our God is an awesome God!

Thanksgiving

A special reminder, October 10th 2016 is Thanksgiving Day. This is a special day for families to celebrate and eat together, giving thanks for all that we have. With so much technology all around us, busy families are so preoccupied and we are losing the human touch of loved ones. This is a particularly good time to say this prayer of gratitude.

Thanksgiving Prayer: Heavenly Father, we praise and thank You for our families, our communities and our country. For the grace of love towards all, regardless of colour, creed, race and religion. For the grace of mercy to listen and assist the cries of suffering of the displaced, abandoned, poor, hungry, abused and depressed. For the grace of hope to help those who are on the brink of hopelessness.

All these we offer to You Dear Lord, Amen

A Message from Christian Family Life – Irene Dillabough

Welcome back after a beautiful God Given summer! Fall is the end and the beginning. The end of summer holidays. The beginning of the new school year. The end of nurturing plants. The beginning of harvest and the joy this brings. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful safe country which has four seasons. We are truly blessed even when the weeds always seem to grow better than the vegetables and nurtured flowers!

40 Days for Life Vigil

This is an annual event starting Sept 28th – Nov 6th – for the Toronto area for your participation https://40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/toronto/ - Public right-of-way across the street from Women's Care Clinic, 960 Lawrence Avenue West, Toronto, Ontario

Life Chain

Mass to End Woman Abuse 7th Annual

The Catholic Family Services of Toronto Foundation and Nativity of Our Lord Parish invite you to attend the 7th annual mass offered to End Woman Abuse. It will be held on Wednesday October 12th at 7:00 pm at the Nativity of Our Lord Parish, 480 Rathburn Rd. Etobicoke. Refreshments will be served following the mass.

All are encouraged to attend. Confirm your attendance by emailing info@cfstoronto.com or calling 416-921-1163.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner as well as the barrage of fall activities . Thanksgiving is a beautiful time to deeply appreciate what God has provided for us. A tradition in our family is to have many family and friends gather for a meal consisting of dishes provided by everyone. Everyone is seated and Grace is said and then each person present age 2or3 and up tells everyone what they are most thankful for. It is very moving and very prayerful.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the meetings and the many activities ahead. Don't forget your milk bags, tabs and Campbell labels.

God Bless

A Message from Community Life – Marguerite Civello

”Being Christians means acting: doing the will of God” And on ‘the last day---because we will all have one---what will the Lord ask us? Will he ask us: “What have you said about me?” No! He will ask about the things we have done’. He will ask us about ‘practical things: “I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came to me”

(Not talk but action, Pope Francis, Feb. 2016)

Refugees in Canada

We are continually urged to help our refugees that have come to Canada. We can welcome them, be an ear to listen to their concerns and help them settle into the community. Help can come in different ways: donating kitchen items, school supplies, helping with the English language, driving them for groceries, doctor’s appointments, bringing a meal. It has been suggested by our Provincial Council that parish councils could host a “welcome shower” whereby items much needed by the family could be donated. Also by having the “welcome shower” the mother or woman of the family has an opportunity to meet women and begin a connection.

ORAT- the office for Refugees, Archdiocese of Toronto, provides advice, support and assistance. Their support comes with information sessions to parish councils and committees on general refugee issues and civic sponsorship opportunities. Their website: https://www.archtoronto.org/catholic-outreach/social-justice-outreach/refugee-sponsorship Please continue to pray for the refugees, those who have been able to find a safe haven here in Canada or other countries, those who are struggling to escape and/or stranded and those who are working with them.

Plight Of First Nations Young People

In the last few months we have heard of a great plight of attempted suicides and deaths of the Cross Lake Nation and Attawapiskat First Nation. Young people in these communities are struggling with many social issues. There has been a plea for prayers and cards/letters of support from the youth of these communities. We have been encouraged by our Provincial Council to write positive messages on cards. We will endeavour to do this at one of our meetings. If you are not able to attend and you would like to send a card with a positive message, this can be sent to: Youth in Cross Lake, Cross Lake Band Office, PO box 10, Cross Lake, MB R0B0J0 -- Youth in Attawapiskat, Payukotayno Administrative Office, 50 Bay Road, P.O. Box 189D, Moosonee, ON P0L 1Y0

Helping Seniors Stay Involved

For the past 8 years, a spirited group of seniors have gathered every Saturday morning at Birkdale Community Centre (1299 Ellesmere Rd. Toronto (near Brimley) 416 396-4069 to dance, sing, play music, share meals and learn about keeping healthy. The Scarborough Ontario Seniors Association was set up to promote and maintain seniors’ physical, mental, emotional and social well-being through wellness programs. SOSA offers line dancing, Tai Chi and Zumba dancing, exercise, karaoke singing and healthy eating workshops. They have started a choir, an instrumental musical group and a folk dancing group. Pleasure trips are also arranged. Some of their destinations have been Nashville, Montreal and Makinac Island. Please call if you are interested.

A Message from Education & Health – Joan Impraim

A Departure From our Comfort Zone may be difficult, but worthwhile. It is pretty easy to live our lives in comfortable bubbles and keeping our involvement with strangers to a minimum. At times this is not an unreasonable approach and most of us tend to know when it is OK to be selfish.

With regard to our church, which boasts a congregation of a few thousand, it is not difficult to understand why some belonging to other faiths, claim that the atmosphere in Catholic Churches is somewhat COLD.

After mass there is very little socialization and people disappear quickly. It would be very good if we could, in an effort to promote more warmth in our church environment, not only reach out to familiar folk, but also to strangers in our midst. It would certainly be a worthwhile gesture to step out of our comfort zone, greet strangers & break the ice with a smile, and a chat may follow.

A ready smile can be disarming; it shows warmth and is a sign of love.

In keeping with this message, it could be a good idea to bring back “CWL Welcome Sunday”.

World Teacher Day is Wednesday October 5th, 2016

A Message from Communications – Mary Tuccitto

Volunteers NEEDED!!

This is a great way to be involved and make a connection with our sisters in the League, particularly with those who don’t often or are unable to come out to events. You would be required to make only a few calls once a month to say “Hello” and share with our members, information on upcoming events and generally let them know we are sisters, looking out for one another. Please call me: Mary Tuccitto at 416 283-8828

A Message from Past President/Historian – Mary Campanelli

St. Joseph’s CWL Nominations/Elections for New Executive Team 2017– 2018 will be held at our November 14th, 2016 General Meeting

Dear sisters in the League, by now you will have received your Nominations and Election Package. Please be sure to complete the Nominations form and returned it by either placing it in a collection basket during mass, mail it in the return envelope enclosed in your package or you may drop it off to the Parish Office by the deadline of Tuesday October 11th.

Note: Any nomination forms received after that date will be destroyed by the Committee.

Please take some time in quiet prayer to ask our Lady of Good Counsel to accept the nomination if you are called. The Nominations and Elections Committee is comprised of Lucia Vacca, Eileen D’Souza and myself, Mary Campanelli as Chair. Remember, if a member of this Committee calls you, then this means that you have been nominated to a position on the 2017–2018 Executive and that someone has seen a special God given talent or gift in you. It is through your acceptance of this nomination that a healthy election can bring about a new and vibrant Executive to lead our Council for the next two years. I encourage you to accept the nomination with an open heart, joyously giving of your service to our members, our community and our charities - “For God and Canada”.

Our Mission Statement: “The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is a national organization rooted in gospel values calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God.” Serving on an executive team is a great opportunity for personal growth and a wonderful way of fulfilling your commitment to the CWL.

Here is what you need to know in making an informed choice in nominating someone for election:

Some names will not appear on the Eligible Members List which was included in your package.

Ingrid Hart - automatically assumes the Past President role and I, Mary Campanelli – Chair of Nominations and Elections Committee, am not eligible for nomination therefore our names have been omitted from the eligible members list as well as others who are not in a position to direct the council. There are many former executive members and members at large who have much CWL experience who can act as mentors to help the new executive team. Ladies, be not afraid to say ‘YES’ as you are called to “Serve God and Canada”.

Betty Anne Brown Davidson Award of Honour

For your convenience, attached to this Newsletter, you will find the Guidelines and Criteria for Eligibility and the Nomination form which can be printed, filled out and returned to your Executive committee for consideration. Please place your nomination in a sealed envelope marked: “CWL – Betty Anne Brown Davidson Nomination”. This may be dropped off at the Parish office or in the collection basket at any Mass.

Two 25 year pins were presented to members by our Spiritual Advisor Fr. Peter Flemming and our Toronto Diocesan President Celestine Hall and seven 10 year pins were presented.
