OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP PARISH COUNCIL OF THECATHOLIC WOMEN’S LEAGUE OF CANADA
Mission Statement: The CATHOLIC WOMENS’ LEAGUE of Canada is a national organization rooted in gospel values calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God.
Why Am I a Member? The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is a powerful vehicle representing more than 95,000 Catholic women, expressing their concerns and acting upon issues of the present time.
To a member, the League is a gift of faith, friendship, leadership development, support and affirmation.
The League is the blueprint for all Catholic women. Through standing committees, members feel the pulse of what is happening in church and society. The resolutions process promotes the rights and dignity of all persons.
The League gives members the opportunity to serve as Beatitude women ‘For God and Canada’.
“Together we share our gifts and watch wonderful works happen.” From ‘Leading the League’.
The Catholic Women’s League of Canada (CWL) is the only women’s organization in all of Canada that meets annually with both the Federal and Provincial Governments to express our views and to solicit the government’s support on issues that affect all of us.
We provide our members with faith, fun, and fulfillment by structuring our meetings in such a way to:
- Deepen their spirituality
- To educate them on important issues of today
- To provide members with fun through social gatherings and community
- Nationally, each member receives 95,000+ prayers each day as we pray for one another.
