About the CWL

Catholic Women's League pinThe Catholic Women's League of Canada is first and foremost a spiritual organization, that hopefully will bring its members closer to God, to our Patroness Our Lady of Good Counsel, and to each other. The CWL is an organization that contributes to the life and vitality of the church, family and community, both at home and abroad.

The CWL strives to:

  • achieve spiritual development
  • contribute to the understanding and growth of religious freedom, social justice, peace, and harmony
  • enhance the role of women in church and in society
  • exemplify the Christian ideal in family life
  • promote the teachings of the Catholic Church
  • protect the sanctity of human life
  • recognize the human dignity of all people
  • uphold Christian education and values

The St. Luke's CWL meets in the Hinsperger Centre on the first Tuesday of the month (September to June), beginning with Mass at 7:00 pm.


Currently, we have 110 members in the St. Luke's Council. Total membership across Canada is over 110,000 women strong.

While your presence at meetings is significant, we realize that in this busy world it may not always be possible for you to attend. Be assured that your interest and support is as important as your attendance!

Come and join our CWL Council – new members are welcome. Membership is open to all women aged sixteen and older.

To join, come out to our monthly meeting on the first Tuesday of every month (September to June), submit the registration fee in the envelope included with you weekly envelopes, register during our January campaign, or call the church during office hours at 905-560-1551.

Your annual membership gives you the option to be an active member of a supporting member who will pray for the wonderful work done by the League and add your vote to the other Canadian members on issues presented to our government.

Our meeting calendar is found by clicking on the Activity Calendar link on the left menu.
