River Bourgeois, Nova Scotia—The Catholic Women’s League of St. John the Baptist parish in River Bourgeois, Nova Scotia, shipped knitted goods for the Northern missions recently. Deirdre Boyd, Spiritual Development chairperson, and Elaine Burke, president of St. John the Baptist CWL in River Bourgeois, pose behind the display of goods collected as an Advent project in the parish. One of their avid knitters was Leo Landry, an 80-year-old supporter on oxygen, who, upon hearing about the project, put hands and knitting needles to work.
