									Directive #1 25 August 2009
Chair: Pauline Krupa

For those who do not know me well:

I am a Special Education Teacher for the Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board at Our
Lady of Charity School. I have taught for many years (some might think far too many). I have
been prayerfully considering my retirement and know now that is definitely my final year. I am
an active member of my parish community at St. Peter's. My son Daniel, his wife Shan and
grand-daughter Joelle are the joys of my life. I enjoy being at home puttering with this and that.
Outside of home, parish and school, I fill my time with basket-weaving, local theatre, and a few
volunteer hours for a variety of organizations.

The Catholic Women's League of Canada came to be a part of my life 20 years ago. As a charter
member to our St. Peter's Council in Thunder Bay, my journey has been very rewarding. Over
the years I have been genuinely blessed with women who freely shared their gifts and talents so
that I could grow in The League. I thank the Arch/Diocesan councils who placed their support
and trust in me by electing me to Provincial Council at the Convention. I promise to be, and to
do the very best I can to fulfill my mandate as your 2nd Vice-President and Resolutions Standing
Committee Chairperson.

Understanding Resolutions
   In 2004 Margaret Ann Jacobs prepared and presented a Resolutions workshop. All Arch/Dioceses received electronic copies of
the workshop. Check to see if it is still available in your area. If not, email me and I will send it to you.
   To this directive I have attached a Resolutions workshop that was prepared for the BC and Yukon provincial council. It too is a
good workshop. In using it, please be sure to check the dates suggested for submissions. (Ontario's dates may differ)

resolutions is being published in the Trillium Newsletter. Full resolutions can be viewed on our provincial website. (
