LTD Update!

 

Ten women from several parishes in the Superior Diocese attended an all day, Leadership, Training and Development Program sponsored by the Province of Milwaukee and hosted by the Diocese of La Crosse. The program was held Saturday, August 4, at Mary Mother of the Church in La Crosse. The program was led by two members of the new National Council of Catholic Women’s Leadership Development Team. New ideas and training skills were presented at the workshop that will be beneficial in building Parish Council of Catholic Women’s organizations for individual parishes and parishes in the deaneries of the Superior Diocese. Some of the topics presented included information on: membership, recruitment & retention, communication and image.  This was an awesome, fun filled day of learning for everyone and a great way to gain a new perspective of our roles as leaders! The information learned will be presented at the August 20th, Superior Diocesan Council of Catholic Women’s Board Meeting at Our Lady of Lourdes in Dobie, Wisconsin.
