WHO WE Are
The Toronto Archdiocesan Council of the Catholic Women’s League was organized in 1921 and now celebrates our 100th anniversary in 2021. The anniversary theme on this milestone is Faith, Love and Service.
Members and spiritual advisors are serving for God and Canada in 103 parish councils in Durham, Humber Valley, Northern, North York, Peel, Scarborough and Toronto regions.
The League is officially recognized by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) as a lay association of women and is affiliated with the World Union of Catholic Women's Organizations (WUCWO), a world-wide federation holding membership in the conference of International Catholic Organizations.

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)
