Women from the Bible reach across the generations to touch our hearts, and compel us to reflect on biblical truths. In sharing their stories of triumph and tragedy, they empower us to face the challenges in our own daily lives.

Poetry and Cinema
Friday, February 15, 2013
The members who gathered on Friday, February 15, for the monthly meeting of the Catholic Women’s Club, were treated to a double feature. J. Lorraine Brown, club member and award winning poet, read several selections of her “spare, elegant, and luminous poems” from her previously published collections, “Skating on Bones” and “Little Houses”, as well as a few from her third collection, “Dancing in the Crystal Palace”, to be released by Finishing Line Press in May, 2013. Lorraine was warmly received by her fellow club members who laughed, applauded, identified with, and thoroughly enjoyed her poetry.
Following Lorraine’s poetry reading, the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”, starring Judi Dench, was presented. The story of a group of British retirees who decide to “outsource” their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India, delighted the women.
The refreshments, in keeping with the theme of an old fashioned afternoon at the movies, included popcorn, ice cream sundaes, and an assortment of delicious chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies baked for us by our own Donna Tippo, Hospitality Chair.
It was an awesome way to spend a chilly February afternoon on Cape Cod.
Author Pat Gohn addresses the Catholic Women’s Club
The Catholic Women’s Club of Christ the King Parish hosted speaker Pat Gohn at its January meeting and morning of reflection. Ms. Gohn is a popular Catholic columnist at Patheos, host of the Among Women podcast on Star Quest Production Network, and former radio broadcaster. She is the author of Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious, Celebrating the Gift of Catholic Womanhood which offers insight into the writings of Blessed John Paul II and articulates four gifts unique to every woman. Her book published by Ave Maria Press is scheduled for release in late March of this year.
Laying the foundation for her remarks Ms. Gohn outlined for her audience three basic attributes possessed by every woman. Women are blessed, created with inherent dignity as reflections of the Creator. Women are beautiful, specifically because of four relational gifts that each woman possesses. In identifying these four gifts Ms. Gomes explained them as: receptivity – an openness or welcoming spirit; generosity – the ability to make a sincere gift of oneself to another; sensitivity – the gift of being able to ‘see’ with the heart; maternity – the gift of being a ‘life bearer’, inclined toward mothering, taking care of others. The speaker reminded the listeners that some of the greatest humanitarians in the world are women. Finally, the third basic attribute of women is that they are bodacious. Here Ms. Gomes described the bodacious woman as one who embraces her dignity and accepts and lives the blessedness of her gifts as her mission in the world. Following the presentation attendees formed small groups to address discussion questions and share responses with the larger group.
The meeting was ended by club president Fran Parsons who extended a thank you to Ms. Gomes for her enlightening presentation. The next meeting of the Women’s Club is scheduled for Friday, February 15 at 1PM in the parish hall. The program is titled Poetry and Cinema Encore and will feature poetry reading by award winning poet Lorraine Brown.

Following the social hour club president Fran Parsons welcomed those in attendance and expressed the grateful appreciation of all to the veterans present for their dedicated service to our country. Following a prayer of thanksgiving a sumptuous dinner prepared by Chef Roland was served and enjoyed.
Prior to the beginning of the evening’s program Ms. Parsons acknowledged the birthday of Rev. Thomas Wyndham and all joined in the singing of Happy Birthday as Father Wyndham was presented with a birthday cake. The program for the evening was led by Donny Nolan, parish music director, and featured the voices of the adult choir. As each branch of the military was recognized, retired members stood and were saluted with the song that identified their particular military affiliation. The musical program, with much audience participation, included a medley of George M. Cohen songs and concluded with the singing of an array of patriotic songs. The audience stood to participate in the final song and hymn of the evening, America the Beautiful and Let There Be Peace On Earth. The evening ended with the announcement of raffle prize winners. Proceeds of the raffle support the club’s scholarship fund.
The next event sponsored by the Catholic Women’s Club will be the Annual Christmas Bazaar to be held on Saturday, December 1st from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm in the parish hall. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Catholic Women's Club Hosts Bistro On the GoOn Friday, October 12, Chef Peggy Eagan, owner
of Bistro on the Go,enlightened and educated members and friends of
Christ the King Catholic Women's Club on the fascinating discovery and
evolution of chocolate. Additionally, Chef Eagan explained cocoa bean
processing, chocolate making and the storage and care of chocolate.
Chocolate originated 4,000 years ago in Mexico and South America. The Aztec Indians of Mexico observed that cacao pods burst open and beans would fall to the ground. The Aztecs soon learned that beans left on the ground for several days developed their characteristic chocolate taste. They began to dry, roast, and ground the beans into a paste, combine it with cold water and vigorously mix it into a drink. Much later the Aztecs in Mexico also used the cacao beans as currency.
In 1520, Hernando Cortez conquered Mexico and thus began the journey of the cacao beans to other parts of the world. Cortez, fascinated by Montezuma and his courtiers drinking chocolate,established cacao plantations in Trinidad, Haiti, and the West African island of Bioko.
Spain maintained a monopoly over the beans and the drink for almost a century heating the drink and adding different spices for flavor. By the 1600's other Europeans tasted the hot chocolate and cultivation of the bean spread to Dutch, English, and French colonies. In the nineteenth century European ingenuity leads to the creation of cocoa powder, eating chocolate, the milk chocolate bar, and a refining method known as " conching”' which gives chocolate a smoother texture.
Of particular interest to the audience was learning that chocolate was first introduced to the United States in 1765 when Irish chocolate maker, John Hannon, imported and refined beans with Dr. James Baker in Dorchester, MA. Together they opened the first chocolate factory in the Lower Mills section of Dorchester. Other notable chocolate factories were established in the United States in the late 1800's by Domingo Ghiradelli and Milton Hershey.
Concluding with informational remarks on cocoa bean processing, chocolate making, and the storage and care of chocolate, Chef Eagan passed around different types of chocolate for taste testing by the audience.
Catholic Women’s Club Begins New YearChrist the King Catholic Women’s Club began a
new program year on Friday, September 7, 2012 with a Eucharistic Liturgy
celebrated by Rev. Monsignor Daniel Hoye, Pastor. Mary Ann Crowley
provided organ accompaniment during Mass. Ann Marie Pavlovich was
featured soloist and, with members of the choir, led the congregation of
more than 100 attendees in song.
In his homily Monsignor Hoye explained the meaning of the message read from St. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. We are not called to judge others since the role of judge belongs to God who in that capacity will also find something for which to commend us. Living out that message each of us is called not to judge each other but to find something for which to commend the other.
Following Mass members moved to the parish hall where tables were beautifully decorated with gold and white cloths and fresh flower centerpieces. President Fran Parsons welcomed everyone and introduced Monsignor Hoye who led the group in grace. The buffet breakfast catered by Roche Bros. was enjoyed by all.
Following breakfast President Parsons conducted the drawing of cash prize winners of the summer raffle conducted by the club. Proceeds from the raffle fund the various charitable outreach activities of the Women’s Club. Ms. Parsons thanked members for their participation and support.
The next meeting of the Catholic Women’s Club will be on October 12th at 1:00 pm in the Parish Center and will feature Chocolate Creations by Bistro on the Go.
