Catholic Women’s Club Holds Annual Banquet

On Tuesday evening, June 10, 2014 Christ the King Catholic Women’s Club hosted its annual banquet at the Coonemessett Inn in Falmouth.


As they arrived attendees were invited to stop and view the club’s ‘year of memories’, a colorful and comprehensive video presentation of the many and varied activities sponsored by

the Women’s Club throughout the 2013-14 year. The evening’s ambience was enhanced by the piano music of Donny Nolan.
Following the social hour President Jeanne Dennis welcomed members and guests and introduced Monsignor Daniel F. Hoye, Pastor of Christ the King Parish, who led those gathered in grace before dinner.


A highlight of the evening was the presentation by Club Vice President Maryann Piccirilli of scholarship awards totaling $6,000 to three outstanding high school seniors who, with their families, were guests at the Banquet. Scholarship recipients were: John Bondarek, graduate of Sturgis Charter East High School who will attend Cape Cod Community College to pursue his interest in broadcasting with the goal of becoming a television anchor; Callie Donahue, graduate of Falmouth High School will attend Rochester Institute of Technology for studies in biotechnology, with the ultimate goal of earning a PhD and pursuing a career in the field of medical research. Lily Josephs, also a graduate of Falmouth High School will be attending the University of New Hampshire to study medical laboratory science in pursuit of a career as a forensic scientist with hopes of working for the Federal  Bureau of Investigation. These three outstanding students were heartily congratulated and wished well in their future endeavors.


Following dinner President Dennis presented Monsignor Hoye with a donation to the parish which was gratefully accepted by Monsignor who thanked the membership for their ongoing support and involvement in Christ the King Parish.


In her closing remarks Mrs. Dennis acknowledged the members of her working board for their diligence and commitment to task and thanked the entire membership for their involvement and support during this past year.

Catholic Women’s Club Hosts Share the Love Luncheon


On Friday, February 14, the Catholic Women’s Club of Christ the King Parish celebrated their monthly meeting on Valentine’s day with a Share the Love luncheon. Members were welcomed by President Jeanne Dennis. Ms. Dennis informed members that the club plans to host a Christian Passover Seder Meal on Wednesday evening of Holy Week, April 16, in the Parish Hall. The Seder Meal will be open to all members of the parish to attend. Following that announcement Ms. Dottie Hiltz, Fundraising Chair, provided information about the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day Celebration to be held on Saturday evening, March 15, beginning with a 5:00 PM cocktail hour followed by a traditional corned beef dinner starting at 6:00 PM and catered by Chef Roland’s Catering. The evening, co sponsored with the 50+ Club and the Knights of Columbus, will feature the entertainment of Jack Wyatt and be held in the Parish Hall. Please contact Dottie at 508-477-2837 for additional information. Following a grace of thanksgiving members enjoyed a lovely buffet luncheon, chocolate desserts included, while admiring the festive table decorations featuring vases of red and white tulips.
Following lunch President Dennis introduced the afternoon’s speaker, Jean Trexler, whose presentation epitomized the share the love theme of the meeting. Jean explained that she found her life passion in 2012 when her daughter Andrea visited Uganda on a mission trip and was introduced to the work of Pastor Bubonero Samuel who heads Return Ministries Organization in Busaga, Uganda. Andrea, who returns each year to Uganda, told her mother of the great poverty and enormous need in the village. Asking how she could help, Jean’s daughter told her that she might help by providing some much needed clothing for the children of the village. That was when Jean started to sew and recruit other local women to sew or contribute materials to make ‘pillowcase dresses’ and shorts along with t-shirts for the children.  Ms. Trexler now sends 2 shipments a year to Busaga, Uganda, mostly at her own expense. To date she has shipped 850 pieces of hand sewn pillowcase dresses, shorts, and t-shirts for children and the need continues to grow beyond this village to a neighboring one where conditions are even worse. In addition to the work of Jean Trexler, President Dennis also displayed for sale “Beads For Life”, colorful paper jewelry made by Ugandan women and sold by Women Helping Women. All proceeds from the sale of the jewelry go directly to these Ugandan women most of whom are the sole support of their families.

Concluding the meeting Ms. Dennis expressed the gratitude of the club to Ms. Trexler for sharing her story and encouraged members to find ways in which they might help in this ongoing effort to clothe children in Uganda.
