The Catholic Women’s League
We welcome every woman over the age of 16 in St. Pius X Parish to join the largest national organization of Catholic women in Canada with a tradition of service to others as expressed in the motto “For God and Canada”. The League is a united voice for Catholic women contributing to life and vitality in the church, family and community.
For more information about membership, please contact our Membership Convenor
We invite you to read the CWL Annual Report 2020-2021 for a glimpse into our ministry’s activities and community support.
Our Council meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month. While attending meetings is important, we realize that in this busy world it may not always be possible for you to attend. Your support is as important as your attendance!
Our aim is to be Christ-centred in faith and action. To do this our League focuses on these principle ministries:
- Spiritual Development
- Promoting Christian values
- Seeking social justice
- Supporting women
For a ride to and/or from any CWL please email us and we will gladly help!
CWL Plant Fundraiser
This event was a big success thanks to the support of the parishioners and our CWL members. The money raised was used to purchase the geraniums for the church flower beds and for improved sanitizing equipment for the church.
Support Our Foster Child, Sasha
A letter from Sasha:
Dear St. Pius X CWL,
I’m your goddaughter Sasha Lencin, and I’m very glad to write to you again. I would like you to know that I passed the course; now I will be in 5th grade. This year I studied very hard and did really well. My favourite subject is music. I like to sing with my friends, Camila and Susan. I danced Saya on MotherÕs Day at my school. My older sisters, Wara and Clara and Issai moved and now live with their respective partners and husbands because they need to initiate their lives as a family. Now I live with my three older siblings, Lessing, Alba and Ofson. I want to thank you for all the support that you have provided me, like the jackets, meals, and school supplies. They mean a lot to me.

St. Pius X CWL $1000 Scholarship
Each year our council presents a post-secondary scholarship to a female member of our parish who is planning to attend local, post-secondary institution and has filled out a scholarship application.
The winner of this scholarship has been chosen for 2021, but we are waiting for her to be in Calgary so that she may be awarded the scholarship in person. We are hoping that it will happen over the Christmas break.
Thank-you to everyone who supports this project with cash and/or refundable donations. Watch for more information to come.
Greeting Cards Project
We collect stamps and greeting cards for various mission projects. Just label your items in a bag and drop them off at the Parish office. These donation will assist Sr. Cecily Graves with her Mission Council work for the Diocese of Calgary.
