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
