The members of the Catholic Women’s League in Calgary have dedicated themselves to the Church’s mission in ways that have supported families, parishes, and communities.  Your legacy of work covers many areas including spiritual growth, education, and advocacy for the teachings of the Faith to be evident in the secular community.  You have consistently witnessed to the dignity of the human person from conception to natural death and you have explored creative ways to support access to palliative care, hospice and home care for those facing terminal illness or who are close to death in your local communities.  This work brings you faithfully to prayer and you bring this commitment to prayer to your homes, parishes, and your CWL colleagues.

For 100 years or more, you have “put your minds, hearts and hands together to serve God, the Church and Canada”. 

I take this opportunity to thank you for your witness to the Faith, and your dedicated efforts to be leaders in your parish communities. 

May God continue to bless each of you and the good works you undertake in his name!
