They're not just good bakers!

June 15, 2009
cwlYou have probably seen them in action in almost every parish – holding bake sales and other fundraisers, leading social justice activities, and meeting in the parish hall. They are the women of The Catholic Women’s League of Canada. But do you know what these ladies do beyond baking and meeting?
Since its foundation in Canada on June 17, 1920, the Catholic Women’s League of Canada remains the largest national organization of women in the nation, with close to 100,000 members today.
These women pray together, do charitable works, march in defense of life, and fight for issues of concern for all Canadians. Above all, they hold each other’s hand in the journey of life and faith. As one of them put it, “We laugh because laughter is indeed God’s gift. We cry because we feel another’s pain. We use our talents because we must. We make a difference because we can.”
Celebrate the anniversary of their foundation with Salt + Light. Be inspired by these women who proudly raise the Canadian flag, and continue to enrich each other’s lives through a faith lived out in loving relationships.
Tune in on Wednesday, June 17, at 9:30 pm ET for The Catholic Women’s League: For God and Canada.
If you miss The Catholic Women’s League: For God and Canada at that time, try one of these encore presentations: Thursday, June 18th at 1:30pm, Friday, June 19th at 9am and 10pm, and Saturday, June 20th at 2pm. All times eastern.
