What do we do?

Holy Family Parish CWL is a vibrant, caring group of women who share a spiritual connection and are dedicated to preserving Christian Family life and the sacredness of life.  The League is involved in charitable work at a local, national and global levels.   Collectively, we support over 20 charities with monetary donations including organizations dealing with issues of social justice, pro-life and catholic education.

We have an active Prayer Shawl Ministry where members knit shawls, blessed by our priest and given to those in need of comfort.  Our Mary’s Hand is an outreach to members where we send cards to fellow members for happy occasions, illnesses or just to keep in touch.

We provide funeral lunches for parishioners throughout the year.  Volunteers prepare food dishes, setup, serve and cleanup after the luncheons.  This ministry provides much comfort for family members and friends.


We have over 200 members.  Our Council is made up of members of all ages whose level of activity varies greatly and we value the support of all members. 

Membership in CWL adds your voice to the largest Women’s group in Canada and has the ability to influence legislation in our governments.  The League offers members the opportunity to develop and learn new skills, enabling them to fulfil their mission of service to one another, to their parish and to the church.

The Catholic Women's League is open to all women of the parish.  We welcome new members 16 years or older.

How often do we meet?

Our General Meetings are held on the first Monday of every month except for July and August.  We meet in the Parish Hall with fellowship social starting at 6:45 p.m. spiritual reflections and then our business segment at 7:15 p.m.  

Could the Catholic Women’s League be for me?

Yes!  The League has a positive voice for good in the Church today and you could be a part of that. As a member you will find fresh interests, make new friends and discover opportunities that will enable you to make a real difference and play an important role in church and society.
