the Catholic Women's League (CWL)
in the Diocese of Calgary
The Catholic Women’s League of Canada calls its members to grow in faith, and to witness to the love of God through ministry and service. Source
We are women of all backgrounds, ages 16 to over 90, wishing to serve God and Canada, seeking "faith, fun and fulfillment" together.
The Calgary Diocesan Council is comprised of all southern Alberta CWL Councils -- from Hanna in the north to Milk River in the south.
Prayers and a spirit of joy are important parts of CWL as members journey together in faith.
With Deepest Sympathy
Calgary Diocesan CWL Council extends our heartfelt sympathy to indigenous families on the tragic discovery of hundreds of unmarked remains detected on some former residential school sites. This confirmed loss of life affects families, survivors, and communities across Canada. We bear witness to the anguish and painful memories of the residential school system in Canadian history. We support Bishop McGrattan's commitment to develop a long-term pastoral approach to reconciliation and healing.
God of compassion and love, heal the families of lost children as they struggle to overcome this great injustice. Our hearts bleed for the sorrow that they bear. May our Lady of Good Counsel fill their hearts with love, wrap them in her mantle, hold them in her arms and bring them comfort. Amen.
Life is a series of new beginnings;
make the CWL a priority in your life - the benefits are eternal!
