Catholic Women’s League
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. Our patroness is the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title “Our Lady of Good Counsel”. We number nearly 100,000 members across Canada.
A deep spirituality provides a basis for league work. We are dedicated to the preservation of Christian family life and the sanctity of all human life. We work to promote the teachings of the Catholic church, exemplify the Christian ideal in home and family life, protect the sanctity of human life, enhance the role of women in church and society, recognize the human dignity of all people everywhere, to uphold and defend Christian education and values in the modern world and contribute to the understanding and growth of religious freedom, social justice, peace and harmony.
Any woman 16 years of age or older is eligible to join the Catholic Women’s League of Canada. The St. Maurice CWL Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month after the 7:00 pm Mass. For more information, please contact ministry president Nellie Gervais at 613-225-7527.
