Catholic Women's League - Next Gen
Catholic Women’s League (CWL)—Next Gen. Our parish is fortunate enough to have 2 vibrant CWL groups, one that meets during the day (2nd Thursday of the month) and an evening group.
The evening group, Next Gen, tend to (but not exclusively) meet on the first Friday of the month at 7.30pm. Most of our members are working or busy looking after families and we understand that making every meeting is not always possible so we build this in to our planning. Last year we had 3 family events incl walks, 3 guest speakers, a cooking demo and more. We have members from across the parish. If you’d like to find out more or give it a try then speak to Michele on 0400 328 758 or Karen on 044 88 90 515 or email email@example.com . We’d love to hear from you. It’s fun and uplifting and you can make a few new friends—what are you waiting for …
Get in touch for details.
