What Does the League Mean to You Today!

Since the beginning, the League has given voice to Catholic women in Canada bringing the gospel values and Christian witness into community and government while serving the people of God at home and abroad.  

The League continues to be a blessing in my life as I share a sisterhood with other women of faith at parish, diocese, province and national levels enriched in the spirit of our Mission Statement.

May God bless you and may every moment given to God with an open and generous heart come back to you blessed a thousand times.

"The church needs you, the League needs you and we need each other."  Be with us now, Lord, we are listening!

(from The Canadian League - Beyond the 90's - Lucille Cullen - Honorary Life Member)
