History: The Catholic Women’s League was created in Edmonton in 1912. The league was formed by Catholic women who wanted to create an organization to support immigrant women and girls seeking work in Edmonton.
Today, we try to serve God, parish and community through prayer and action. Memebership is available to any woman 16 years of age and older.
One Year membership with St. Anthony’s CWL, Lloydminster, is $25.00

Where do I Fit? . . .
I belong to a grassroots parish-based
organization that is part of the largest
national organization of Catholic
women in Canada.
My membership offers me opportunities to
become involved on the regional, diocesan,
provincial, national and even international scene.
The CWL has met annually with all levels of government
since the 1970’s, so I know my voice will be heard.
Whether as mothers in families, as a vital presence in the
work force and the instituations of society, or in the
particular vocation of following our Lord . . . women
have an indispensable role . . .
This feels right for me . . .
The Catholic Women’s league is a faith centered organization for all women 16 years of age or older, which focuses on spiritual development, increasing our knowledge of the Catholic faith, and social issues which are translated into action. We invite all women of the Parish to add their voices to this National Catholic group, regardless of the time they can commit.
