Catholic Women’s League

Women make the world beautiful; they protect it and keep it alive. 
They bring the grace of renewal, the embrace of inclusion, and the courage to give of oneself.”

Pope Francis in meeting members of American Jewish Committee

Catholic and Living It! Updates – London Diocesan Council

There are many wonderful bursaries offered by the London and National CWL for those going off to Post- Secondary School. Please take some time to look at them or share with someone you think might benefit.

The Catholic Women’s League is a movement for change. We are one of the largest lobbying groups in Canada. We can and HAVE made real changes in laws in this country. The St Patricks CWL supports our church with flowers, Coffee Sunday Socials. We support our youth through sacramental gifts and receptions, our seniors with calls and cards, and local charities through monies raised by our bazaar. We also serve coffee for funeral lunches if families request it and donate money to good causes that may be brought forth by our parishioners. With our diocesan sisters, we offer spiritual retreat days and opportunities for fun, leadership development, and mentoring. We hold 10 meetings each year, 2 of which are social. At these meetings we try to provide a balance of fun and work. We are welcoming new members to help us grow into an organization for change and growth in our church community. Come and help us be the organization that we can be.

100 Years of Service, Faith and Justice in Lucan Biddulph Township

In 2022, the Catholic Women’s League of Saint Patrick’s parish celebrated 100 years of service. They have been many things to many people over those years. It was and still is, a place for friendship and encouragement, and a source of support during hard times.

In the local Saint Patrick’s CWL, they raised approximately $2000 from their Bazaar that will be distributed to community charities in the spring. They are grateful for the ongoing support of our community and the donations to the Bazaar effort. They support the youth in the parish with books, gifts, and receptions to help in the development of faithful and community minded people. We keep up to date on community news by being in contact with other groups like our local foodbank and community churches.

We are a group of faith filled and hardworking ladies, who are active in the parish and community. We hold traditional events like our bazaar and pot luck dinners, but we also make space at our meetings to listen to what our members are going through with a focus on intercessory prayers. We, as a national organization, are moving toward an online presence as well as our in-person meetings.

UPCOMING MEETINGS

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month after the 7:00 pm Mass. For more information email stpatlucan@dol.ca

Funeral Lunches – The Catholic Women’s League of St. Patrick Parish are now able to offer once again luncheons after Funeral Liturgies in our parish. Lunches of 60 people or less can be held in the Parish Hall; and also the League members are willing to serve elsewhere (like the Lucan Community Centre) for larger groups.

League Prayer

We humbly pray You,
O God our Father, to bless
The Catholic Women’s League of Canada.
Bless our beloved country,
our homes and families.
Send Your Holy Spirit upon us
to give light to our minds
and strength to our wills
that we may know and fulfil
Your great law of charity.
Teach us to share with others
at home and abroad,
the good things You have given us.
This we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ
and the intercession of our patroness,
Our Lady of Good Counsel.
Amen
