Bellelle Guerin Award

National CWL awards presented at Saint John the Baptist Church

The St. John the Baptist Council of the Catholic Women’s League of Canada presented the Bellelle Guerin Award to Elaine Sponagle and Joan MacDonald Feb. 11, 2018.

Named after the first president of the CWL, the Bellelle Guerin Award is the third highest award in the league, and the highest award presented to members who have not served at the Provincial and National Levels. Recipients have been active and dedicated members for at least 25 years. The award recognizes extraordinary service and love of the League, demonstrated by words and actions.
