Memories of 33rd Annual VDCCW Convention: Evangelization: Living the Joy of the Gospel

HERE'S TO OUR FUTURE:

The Junior CCW of St. Michael's in Wauchula.  What a treasure to have our young ladies perform a skit at the VDCCW Convention o4/21/2018.n Women of the Bible.

October 2018  JUNIORS CCW from Wauchula really shine!  We are so proud of them!  (left to right) 1) They made a pilgrimage to the Respect Life Garden designed by Father Jerry Kaywell, Barbara Chamberlain, Tom Grant and the Knights of Columbus at Sacred Heart, Punta Gorda.  Standing on memorial bricks, they are pictured here with the bronze statue celebrating the Unknown Soldier.   Hidden by the statue through the Pagoda is the shrine to the "unborns" whose lives were taken in abortions designed by Harold and Dolores Garvis and the Knights of Columbus. 2) Mentored by Iris Gomez the Junior CCW attended the VDCCW Convention at Epiphany Cathedral Center.  3) The Juniors presented a wonderful play about the Women of the Bible at the VDCCW Convention (2017).
