Praying the Rosary:

Everyone is encouraged to pray the rosary - especially on Tuesday. In the latter part of 2014 all CWL council members in Canada were asked to set aside one day a week to pray a rosary for peace - specifically to end the violence in the Middle East. To facilitate this process each province was assigned a day and Alberta Mackenzie was blessed with Tuesday. We are being encouraged to continue to petition our Blessed Mother on Tuesdays through the prayer of the rosary as we know that she has promised to answer our prayers.

Rosary - Sorrowful Mysteries written by Judy Look

The CoVid-19 Pandemic (March 2020) has prompted the Alberta Mackenzie Provincial President to lead all in the Rosary every Wednesday evening, via a ZOOM link (posted on the home page).  This will continue while the pandemic grips our country and the whole world.

Sacraments:

InspiredbytheSpirit     Baptism
We encourage all councils to focus on the sacraments as a way of life as well as encouraging all councils to add an educational component to their spirituals.  Above you will final a spiritual developed to focus on Baptism.  I am suggesting that you might use it for the April meeting as that is the month generally of Easter and we renew our Baptismal promises.  As you all read through the attachment you will find the first page is a handout with excerpts from the Catholic Catechism and Pope Francis which encourages all of us  to read and reflect on.  We all need to be encouraged to learn more about our faith through the teachings of the Church.  This first instalment really forms the template for spiritual programs for the other sacraments
To the spiritual development chairs the attachment can be used as it or modified as you see fit.  The italicized portions are instructions and the handout is to be given to the members to be used in the meeting but also to take home as information.
