St. Paul the Apostle
Catholic Women's League
The Catholic Women's League of Canada calls its members to grow in faith,
and to witness to the love of God through ministry and service.”
We are a national group of Catholic women with almost 90,000 members across Canada.
At St. Paul’s we have always developed friendships with fellow parishioners, supported our Priests
through prayer, reflection and retreats, enjoyed guest speakers and
hosted funeral receptions as requested, to name a few.
We look forward to continuing towards the full return to these activities
as it is evident that many members miss the social aspect and the teamwork these activities fostered.
The Catholic Women’s League (CWL) is open to all women of the parish 16 years of age+.
All members, with email, receive a weekly update, current happenings with CWL
as well as other parish news and prayers.
This newsletter has kept our members in touch with each other
and enabled a continued connection to the parish.
If you know of someone in need of prayers; a Sympathy, Get Well or
Thinking of You card please email us at email@example.com.
May 9th at 7pm evening Mass, followed by a Living Rosary and Crowning of Mary.
Following these events there will be a General Meeting in the parish hall.
June 10th is the CWL food drive in support of Burlington Food Bank and Shifra homes.
This event will take place in the parish parking lot from 10 am to 6pm.
We are still looking for volunteers to sign up to cover 2 hour shifts.
Please contact Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on how to volunteer.
June 13th is the final general meeting before the summer break.
The meeting begins at 7:30 pm following the 7pm mass in the church and will include
a pin ceremony for milestone members and a social.
All ladies of the parish are welcome!
Member ship dues were due in November but we are still accepting late payments.
Please note that membership dues have recently increased for 2023.
Annual dues have now changed to $40.00 per year.
The increase is due to a change in fees at the National level, based on a motion voted on by all Councils.
Feel free to contact email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
We are accepting cash and cheque payable to Catholic Women's League.
We look forward to growing our membership and welcoming new members!
Membership enquiries may be directed to our Membership Convener,

To the Parish Community for helping to make our November Food Drive a success.
Our toes were cold but our hearts were happy.
With the help of our community, we raised 582 pounds of food and $500 cash.
