Fall Meeting  The Grand Island Deanery CCW  will host their Fall Meeting at Resurrection Parish in Grand Island  October 22, 2018.  The featured speaker will be Fr. Jim Schmidt, who will speak on “Joy”.

The GIDCCW reps decided to meet on a weekday this time to gauge the kind of response we would get on attendance.  Some felt the weekend prevented some from coming because of family activities.

We will have our Installation of Officers after Fr. Dave Rykwalder leads us in a Patriotic Rosary.  Fr. Dave thought he would like to try this instead of a Mass, because of the turmoil our country is in right now.  We are also trying a half day meeting to see if that will boost attendance.

The schedule is as follows:

8:30-9:00       Coffee and rolls    Registration is $10

9:00-10:00     Short business meeting

10:00-11:00    Fr. Schmidt   on “Joy”

11:00-12:00    Patriotic Rosary and Installation of Officers followed by Lunch

New GI Deanery CCW  officers to be installed are:

Betty Van Dyke   President     from St. Paul, NE   St’s Peter and Paul

Sheryl Perkins     Vice-President   from Grand Island   Blessed Sacrament Parish

Linda Gawrych    Secretary  from St. Paul  St’s Peter and Paul

Vicki Harvey         Treasurer from  Greeley  Sacred Heart

I am so thankful these women have chosen to be on the Grand Island Deanery team,  They are all faith filled and willing to work for the greater glory of God.

As past Deanery President and newly elected President-elect, I have chosen to put together an Intercessory team  to pray the Seven Sorrows of Mary .  Our intention is to invoke the Holy Spirit to work on the hearts of all Catholic Women, so that they work together as DCCW women to do the work here that God would have us do.

Kayleen Lukasiewicz, President – Elect  GI DCCW
