...of the Catholic Women of the Year Luncheon Committee! Somehow, a group of ladies organising a Luncheon sounds like the last word in haven'they-got-something-better-to-do? activity....but this is a substantial national event, bringing together Catholic women from across Britain, that marks its 50th anniversary, its Golden Jubilee next year.
The 2017 gathering will be something of a preparation for the big Jubilee celebration, but also a great event in its own right...
Today we elected the four Catholic women of the year - as always, by secret ballot, by a committee drawn from representatives of the main Catholic women's organisations in Britain.
Book the date for the 2017 Luncheon in your diary: Nov 3rd 2017 in London. Tickets £45, money raised goes to charity. The four Catholic Women of the Year, plus our Guest Speaker and other details, will be announced next week (letters have to go to the four first!).
