Catholic Women's League
The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is a national organization, rooted in gospel values, calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God.
As the largest national organization of Catholic women in Canada, we seek to unite Catholic women as a community, striving for spiritual, cultural and intellectual growth, and the development of social action. All Catholic women are invited to respond to the call – knowing that their actions contribute to the life and vitality of the Church, family, and community.
Women from all walks of life are called forth to witness the life of Christ by constantly being in touch with the movement of the Holy Spirit in their lives. Involvement in the League offers women a deeper appreciation of the Catholic faith. The League is a true reflection of the options expressed on a variety of issues, studied and research at the grassroots, resulting in formulation of resolutions. In keeping with our motto “For God and Canada”, resolutions are presented annually by the Catholic Women’s League of Canada to government at the federal and provincial levels, as statements of concern.
The League is very much a gift to all Catholic women. As CWL members we...
• belong and walk in friendship and faith with other members
• are a family and the ‘heart’ of our faith community
• share the same God, the same goals, and the same aspirations with women
of the same values and beliefs
• share the beauty of the League where there is a place for women of all ages
• receive the gift of a wholesome, balanced, healthy, productive and loving
We invite all catholic women to journey with us in a sisterhood of faith, fun and fulfillment.
