Catholic Women's League

Mission Statement

“The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is a nation organization rooted in gospel values calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God.”

We are the largest national organization of Catholic women in Canada

Values are learned traditions, something handed to us and which we in turn hand to others. As Catholic women we are not only rooted in the gospel but also rooted in values, which have been shaped through its church that is the People of God.

We are called to imitate Jesus Christ in active participation in the liturgical and the sacramental life of the church, and through personal prayer.  We are called to practice love of life and service to our family, our community, and our brethren.

Motto - "For God and Canada"

The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is first and foremost a spiritual organization that will bring its members closer to God, to our Patroness Our Lady of Good Counsel, and to each other.
