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

Monthly meeting/Annual General Meeting:

Please join us for our Monthly meeting/Annual general meeting on January 31st  at 7:30 pm in the parish hall.  (immediately following 7pm mass)

Membership Dues:

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 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, Annette Osbaldeston at 905-336-5642

To the Parish Community for helping to make our  Drive up Food Drive on November 19th and 20th 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. These donations  were gratefully  accepted by the Salvation Army Food Bank here in Burlington!
