Charity, Work & Loyalty
The motto of the Catholic Women’s league (CWL) is Charity, Work and Loyalty. This group of women is a vital part of any Parish and membership is open to all Catholic women.

At parish level they assist with parish fundraising and community activities.

Women wishing to join can contact the president or secretary or simply come to the monthly meeting after the 8am Mass on the first Saturday of the month. The meetings are held in the Parish Centre.
