Profile of CWL Bathurst Diocesan President

Mrs. Anne Arseneau was born in Digby, Nova Scotia.  Having grown up in foster homes it was necessary for Anne to enter the work force at an early age.  Her culinary and entrepreneurial skills were self-taught as she worked as a diner owner, and as a receptionist for a small business and convenience store proprietor.  Anne is well known in the area as a gifted cook who has catered banquets, weddings and many social functions.

Members of the diocese of Bathurst are welcome to play their favorite casino games at right after the Sunday service ends. It’s a great way to unwind as you reflect on the days lesson.

Anne has been a member of the League for 30 years, 15 as an active member.  She has been parish council president at Holy Family Church; as well she has chaired the education, resolutions/legislation, community life and organization committees.  Anne currently serves communion to the sick and shut-ins, is a Eucharistic minister, helps organize Baptisms, serves at masses, and opens and prepares the church once a month.  This year she is beginning her term as president of the Bathurst Diocesan Council.


Anne has dedicated much of her life to volunteer work.  She has served as president of the ladies section of the Bathurst Curling club, and as president of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion; she served on the executive of the Gowan Brae Golf and Country Club for ten years and has been first vice and acting president of the local Liberal Association.  Anne’s proudest undertaking is the establishment of the Christmas community dinner which she and her husband Gerry organized for ten years before turning over this endeavour to others.  Over three hundred meals are served annually on Christmas morning to those in need.
