Not just a women’s club
OH YES, IT’S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - May 16, 2019 - 12:00am

The Catholic Women’s Club of the Philippines (CWC), founded in 1921, is one of the oldest and most prestigious women’s clubs in the country.

The untiring and dedicated Nene Pe Lim has been chosen to lead the club, now on its 98th year, as its president to work in the service of God and man.

Fr. Reu Galoy, OFM, Nene Pe Lim and Bishop Raul Martirez, D.D.

A Eucharistic celebration and an induction ceremony were held at the Santuario de San Antonio Parish in Makati City, where Nene and the rest of the club officers and committee chairpersons promised to preserve and nurture the club’s values.

Congratulations to the Catholic Women’s Club of the Philippines for a successful induction ceremony!
