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.

The increase is due to a change in fees at the National level, based on a motion voted on by all Councils.
