February 2020 On-Line Provincial Newsletter (click to open)

Thunder Bay Diocese and OPC Recording Secretary, Joanne Hough are featured in this On-Line newsletter,  and much more……

February is considered the coldest month in Canada when we long for summer.  You will find numerous travel bargains both to fly out from Canada and for visitors who love to ski to visit Canada for winter festivals.  It is the year’s shortest month so time will fly quickly. 

February is also considered heart health month, so take care and stay healthy.

It is also the month of love and the month in which we celebrate “Valentine’s Day” on the 14th of February.  Do let your love ones know you love them, and may they reciprocate their love to you.

Finally, we will begin the Lenten season on Ash Wednesday on February 26th.  Lent is a time for purification and gratitude for the Lord’s  love for us.

The 2020 Catholic Women’s League Membership fee is $25.  For Parish envelope users, there is a C.W.L envelope in January.  C.W.L Membership envelopes are also available at all entrances to the Cathedral.

We are no longer providing Membership Cards after membership is paid. They are becoming too expense and a lot of ladies do not pick them up. Instead we will be issuing receipts and as usual they can be picked up at the main entrance of the church from the CWL Membership Box.
