St. Anne's CWL

The Catholic Women's League is an organization open to all Catholic women age sixteen and over. It is a National organization, which meets in convention each year in a different province. The Mission Statement is fully described on their homepage http://www.cwl.ca.

St.Anne’s Council has a membership of approximately 140 members.  Our meetings are in our church at 7:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month from September to June. The meetings begin with approximately 30 minutes of a spiritual/educational program followed by a business meeting and a time for socializing.
We speak out through personal letter writing and formal resolutions on issues needing moral direction, which may extend beyond our national borders.  These resolutions are advanced to the National Council, which presents them to the government for action.
You will found our members active in all aspect of parish life, from taking the Eucharist to shut-ins to participating in walkathons. The money realized through a variety of fundraisers allows us to support various charities as well as needs within our own parish. We serve at funeral receptions, with the assistance of our
parishioners. Guest speakers at our meetings keep us abreast of local, national and international issues.
We continue to welcome new members to join us as a group of ladies experiencing “fun, faith and fulfillment”!
