Catholic Women of the Year 2015 - Call for nominations

Nominations have opened for the Catholic Women of the Year 2015.  Any Catholic woman can be nominated. It only requires a letter listing the reasons why she should be put forward for this honour.  The Committee is looking for the "unsung heroines" - women who care for the frail and elderly, who teach children the Catholic faith in schools or parishes, visit prisons, raise funds for charity, or are involved in community projects... women who are good neighbours, who defend and uphold Christian values, who care for the common good...women who are married or single, or vowed in religious service, women in all walks of life.

The Catholic Women of the Year Luncheon is a popular event, held now for over 40 years. The four Catholic Women of the Year are chosen by secret ballot by a committee drawn from representatives of Catholic organisations in Britain. There is no actual award - just a special welcome at the Luncheon, which seeks to celebrate and honour the contrribution made by Catholic women to the life and work of the Church in Britain.

Nominations should be sent, by email to the Chairman, Mrs J  Woodford at [email protected] or by post to 22 Milton Road WARE SG12 0PZ before April 10th 2015. The letter doesn't have to be long or elaborate. Please make sure it includes your full name and an address/tel number at which they can contact you!
