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

If I . . .
            Want yo develop a deeper spiritual life,
            Believe in the power of prayer,
            Strive to set a Christian example
                     in my home and workplace,
           Believe in the sactity of life,
           Believe women play an important role
                    in church and society,
          Seek to uphold the dignity of all human beings,
         Believe in the value of Catholic
                        education and affordable
                                                 health services,
            Understand the importance of
                       religious freedom, social jusstice,
                       peace and harmony,

Then I belong in the CWL!       

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.
