BRITISH CATHOLIC WOMEN GROUP LAUNCHES MILLENNIUM CAMPAIGN

        LONDON (CWNews.com) - The Catholic Women's League (CWL) of Britain on Monday launched a nationwide poster campaign to remind the country of the true meaning of the millennium celebrations.

        The three posters -- each bearing the words Christ, Millennium, 2000 -- were chosen from thousands of designs submitted by Catholic school children from all over Britain. They will be displayed in prominent spots throughout the country.

        CWL national president Anne Fox said that with the nation planning weeklong parties over Christmas and the New Year, the league thought their voice should be heard. "We just felt the Christian message was coming through," said Fox. "So we launched a national competition to design the posters."

        "We were most encouraged at the response and the ideas that came out. It is encouraging to see that our children really do think about the true meaning of the millennium," she said. "Of course, the newspapers only ever tell us about children who are in trouble. You never ever hear about the really decent kids." The three children who submitted the winning entries each received a cash prize sponsored by CWL and a computer for their schools.
