Catholic Women's League
Welcome to the homepage of the Resurrection Parish CWL. The Catholic Women's League of Canada, or CWL, is a national Catholic women’s organization. Here at Resurrection Parish, the CWL is actively involved both within the parish and out in the community.
CWL meets the first Tuesday of every month, September to June.
All women of Resurrection Parish are invited to share their time and talents, by joining our CWL! Our members enjoy fellowship at our monthly meetings, connecting with other Catholic women and taking part in our spiritual programs. Others like to do service in the greater community through CWL, volunteering to help with birthday parties and resident activities at our long-term care facilities. Our Bake Sales are a popular parish event that is coordinated by the CWL. There is something for everybody in the CWL – take the opportunity and come find out what CWL has to offer you.
If you are interested in joining us, please contact our CWL President, Rosella McGrane by telephone at 306-789-6314. For more information about the CWL, who we are, and what we do, please visit our national homepage at www.cwl.ca
