Catholic Women’s League

About the Catholic Women’s League

Margaret Fletcher set up the Catholic Women’s League in 1906 for the education of women. The League still offers members the opportunities to develop and learn new skills, and use them for the benefit of the church and especially their local parish. Belonging to CWL is a journey of prayer, faith and friendship.

Our Patron is St Margaret Clitherow, Martyred at York on 25th March 1586, canonised by Pope Paul VI in 1970.

Generally ...

Whether it is providing coffee and biscuits after Mass, helping with catering at other parish events, fundraising for national and local community charities, our parish CWL members show unity in prayer and action.

Interested in joining us? Speak with committee members Frances Woodward (Chairperson) or June Rust (Secretary). You will be welcome!


News May 2019

With apologies, due to health problems there is sadly quite a gap between the last update and this.

At the May meeting it was reported that Weymouth's CWL National Coffee Morning event, held on Sunday 12th May, had been successful. The group now looks forward to the Lulworth Picnic and Mass on 12th June.

At the meeting a short WUCWO service was held. This usually takes place on or near the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, 13th May. In our prayers we joined with WUCWO members throughout the world. Following this Julie Powell spoke about the recent news from WUCWO. A discussion followed.

In June Weymouth Branch will host ladies of other local parishes at an Ecumenical Cream Tea on 11th June at 2pm. As usual there will be an entertainment provided by members. This is a very popular annual event.
