Welcome to

the Catholic Women's League

in the Diocese of Calgary

In the world today, as perhaps never before, the church needs an enlightened and faithful laity. Dedicated members of The Catholic Women's League of Canada live their faith by serving others and, thus, discover Christ through relationships with others.

At the 71st Annual Convention of the Alberta Mackenzie Council, Renee Spohn, a member of St. Martha's Council, Lethbridge, was awarded with the Elsie Yanik award. This award is given to a member who portrays a leadership role and has demonstrated a commitment to ministry/service in an area or areas of need in a parish or community, as Elsie Yanik did.

Congratulations, Renee.


 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.

 Please explore our site, Mission Statement and Member Information, and consider joining us. We'd love to have you!

 Prayers and a spirit of joy are important parts of CWL as members journey together in faith.


Our theme for 2017-18 is Inspired by the Spirit, women respond to God's call.
