“The Internet… offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity.
This is something truly good, a gift from God” (Pope Francis).

My dear sisters in the League,

Just as spring is around the corner showing signs of new life, the world is slowly starting its rebirth. Councils are beginning to meet again in person, and conventions are on the horizon. As chairpersons, you move forward with the knowledge from the technology utilized during the pandemic. Many embraced technology that enabled us to stay connected. Continue to use technology to enhance how you stay connected, access resources and share those resources moving forward.

The national executive/board continues to strive to seek the best possible way to serve members. With technology, it is an ongoing service that requires constant change.

I want to draw your attention to two important items posted on the national website and social media.

  1. A survey regarding the national website: The board seeks input from members so they can easily navigate the website and access what they need. Kindly ask your diocesan chairpersons to inform members about the survey and encourage them to respond. The board is eager to receive the responses.
  2. The board is actively looking for a social media manager. The following is posted on the website and social media regarding the criteria for the position.

The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is seeking a social media manager. The person in this voluntary role will be entrusted with monitoring, executing, and maintaining information and marketing campaigns for the League across several social media platforms.

The social media manager will be required to work with the national chairperson of communications and national office to ensure important and relevant information regarding the League is up to date on the website and social media. The position will also require new content to be posted to social media on a regular basis. Time commitment is approximately up to two hours per day.

In-depth knowledge of computer skills and posting to the different social media platforms is required. In addition, an understanding of social media analytics and performance is an asset.
