Catholic Women's League

What is the Catholic Women’s League?

The CWL is a lay association of Catholic women recognized by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB). The League works to promote Catholic values, as well as to carry out volunteer and charitable work.

Our Mission

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.

If you want to make a difference in the world, enrich your faith, and uphold family life, consider joining the CWL. Through your membership, you can support charitable outreach projects locally and around the world.

Can I join?

We welcome all women ages 16 and older, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. As women, we understand that attending every meeting is not always possible; we encourage you to join us whenever you can. We welcome the gifts and talents you have to offer.

If you see the St. Michael’s CWL as a place where others share your Christian values, a place where we all seek to grow in our faith and to put that faith into action, then this is the place for you!

How to join

To join the CWL at St. Michael’s, simply fill out this form and send a scanned copy to cwl@saintmichael.ca. You can also drop it off at the parish office, or in the collection basket during Mass (place it in an envelope labeled CWL).

You can pay your $30 membership fee via Interac E-Transfer by sending it to smcwltreasurer@gmail.com (set the security answer to membership). Please put your name in the message field.

Feel free to download our League Prayers for you to use for your personal prayer.
