HEADING the Fiji Catholic Women's League in Fiji is surely not an easy task says new president Selina Lee Wah.

Mrs Lee Wah says being chosen to be at the helm of one of the country's largest Christian denomination's women's group will need extra hands and support from league members.

She was selected to the post after the league's Annual General meeting on Friday in Solevu, Bua which ended with the elections of the new office bearers.

"I am very honoured to be chosen for the new role and look forward to working closely with women in the church to reach out to people and help them strengthen their relationship with God,"' she said.

"As a community worker I feel one way the league can assist in society is by lending an ear to the poor and needy around us.

"Many times I feel that we are busy doing our own things forgetting the important things in life which is lending helping hands to the needy and a pair of wings to the faithless."

Mrs Lee Wah also thanked the former office bearers particularly the former president Sulita Nasila.
