Dear Friends in the Lord,
Greetings of Peace and Love!
It has been said that gratitude is the memory of the heart! We would like to thank you for taking part in our CLCP National Convention 2023 last November 25 and December 2!
Your Leadership Community is still relishing and savoring the graces that the entire community has received during the past 2 weekends. It was such an affirmation from the Lord that CLC is from Him and His gift to the Church.
Being God’s gift to the Church, there is a felt response to create paths for hope for each other, for our community, and for the wider community which is the Church.
Below are a few suggestions that can help you in your discernment in creating paths for hope as an individual CLCer and as a CLC Community.
Again, our heartfelt thank you and we hope to see you more often both in our communal and apostolic activities.
God bless us all!
