There were 28 women representing 14 branches across the State in attendance, as well as CWL chaplain Fr Brian Angus who gave the opening reflection.

Business proceeded rapidly with reports from the retiring State president Cecilia Quigley as well as Diocesan reports from Barbara Mott, Adelaide Archdiocese, and Anne Marie Clark, Port Pirie Diocese.

All positions were declared vacant and Fr Brian had the relatively easy task of listing the new office bearers, as nominations had been filled beforehand.

The AGM concluded with everyone praying the Angelus.

After a delicious lunch, catered for in a COVID-safe way, and plenty of chat time, the afternoon meeting began with a presentation by guest speaker El Payne from Puddle Jumpers.

Members also heard how Karen de Sousa, from Emmaus Next Gen Branch, is setting up a Facebook page for all CWL SA members.

Anne Redden gave an update from the Future Directions Sub Committee, focusing on the results of the restructure survey.

Maureen Clark and Leonie Holmes gave reports on Mental Health Needs for Young People, Poverty in Australia and Palliative Care Rather than Euthanasia.
