MORE than 823 registered members of the Fiji Catholic Women's League are in Bua this weekend for their annual conference.

Outgoing League president Sulita Nasila said they expected 1000 women from around the country at the meeting.

Ms Nasila said it was a time to strengthen their spiritual walk with God.

"It is also a time for Catholic women to fellowship together and share their experiences with their counterparts on strengthening their relationship with God.

"The women started arriving at Solevu on Wednesday and will disperse from here on Monday after the camp.

"This year the national president of the league will be chosen from the North and we do wish the new office bearers well," she said.

Ms Nasila said they encouraged equal participation of all women in the four divisions at the helm of the organisation.

Villagers from Vuya, Makolei, Nawaido, Nacavaga, Baravi and Kubulau were happy to cater for the meeting.

Organising committee chairman Epeli Mikaele said a working capital of $9800 was set aside for the event.

Solevu Catholic Parish priest Father Veremo Dovarua said having the meeting at the parish was a blessing for the people of Bua.

"We are blessed to host the women from around the country here as they fellowship together for their annual general meeting," he said.
