CWL Newsletter – Coming Soon!

The Catholic Women’s League of Canada (the League) was organized nationally on June 17, 1920 and granted federal incorporation on December 12, 1923. The League is officially recognized by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) as a lay association of women and is affiliated with the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organizations (WUCWO), a world-wide federation holding membership in the conference of International Catholic Organizations (ICO) and having consultative status with agencies of the United Nations.  The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is an organization that contributes to the life and vitality of the church, family and community, both at home and abroad.  An invitation is extended to all young women 16 years of age and older to purchase a membership in the Catholic Women’s League of Canada. By doing so you will be: supporting the efforts of League members across Canada who are diligently working to promote the teachings of the Catholic church and part of the largest national organization of Catholic women in Canada with a tradition of service to others as expressed in its motto “For God and Canada.”  While your presence at meetings is important, we realize that in this busy world it may not always be possible for you to attend.  Be assured that your interest and support is as important as your attendance!
