invite you to attend the 95th Annual Convention of the
Harrisburg Diocesan Council of Catholic Women on Saturday, April 17, 2021 virtually.
It is fitting that our theme for this year is “Rejoice and Be Thankful” as we host our 95th Convention during the Easter Season.
This has been a challenging time for everyone. It might be hard to count our blessings this past year. However, if we look deep inside, we have a newfound joy in the little things. The challenge is to be joyful amid this challenging time.
So, what is Joy? Joy does not mean always laughing and smiling and socializing. True joy comes from within, as we encounter Jesus, present in our lives. We find joy commanded throughout the Bible. In Psalms 97:12 and 32:11 we hear “rejoice in the Lord” and “be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.”
Come celebrate with your mother, grandmother, daughter, or that woman in your life that has been there for you. Join us, as we “Rejoice and Be Thankful” for all that we have today and always.
We are looking forward to your virtual attendance. May God Bless you and Our Lady of Good Counsel keep you! Please stay safe and healthy. We will be together again soon!
