Why Become A CWL Member?
(Taken from “The Jewel in God’s Crown”- a speech given by CWL member, Maura Canavan during the 2006 CWL Leadership and Public Speaking Course in Peel Region).
† If I offered you a shiny, sparkling diamond for $20 a year – would you go for it?
† If I offered you a chance to improve the quality of your life, the life of your family, would you go for it?
† If I offered you the chance to know God to grow spiritually – would you go for it?
† I wonder, if I asked you, if you wanted to let your hair down and have some fun, would you go for that?
As we go through life, we make choices:
† We choose to love
† We choose good over evil
† We choose our mate, our friends, a certain life style and the list goes on and on.
I am inviting YOU to choose to become a member of the Catholic Women’s League of Canada. If you choose the CWL, it is a diamond – a sparkling, twinkling, diamond in God’s crown, and there are many facets to this diamond.
† Yes you will have the opportunity to improve the quality of your life and the life of those you love.
† Yes you can help your neighbour.
† Yes we do raise money for the church.
† Yes we do encourage and recognize our youth.
† Yes we take action on health issues.
† Yes we are a powerful force in the church and
† Yes our voice is heard in the local, provincial, national and international community.
† Yes you will come to know God and
† Yes we all know how much fun it can be when you get a group of women together, laughing and joking in a Christian atmosphere of friendship and sharing.
We need you and we want you to infuse us with your fresh new ideas, with your energy and your positive attitudes – we know you have a lot to give. Just as God has a place for us, there is a place for each one of us within the framework of the CWL. I ask you to join us and choose to be a part of that precious jewel in God’s crown.
