About this site:

Why should I sign up as a member of the site?

Becoming a member means you can leave comments on the individual “posts”, or communiques. It also means that in the future should this site have any “members only” private pages or posts, you would be able to access them. We keep your login information private; you will receive a welcome email from the webmaster, and may occasionally receive administrative notices regarding the site itself. If you do not want to leave comments, you do not need to sign up as a member of the site.

What does ‘Subscribe to this Site’ mean?

Many websites offer something called “RSS” or “Really Simple Syndication”. In a nutshell, it is a “feed” that tells you when a site you have subscribed to has new, updated content. To access RSS, you need to use a Feed Reader, such as Google Reader or Bloglines. It makes keeping up with a number of sites, whether they are news sites or blogs, very simple since you do not need to visit each site to find out if they have new content. This page has a great introduction to RSS. The RSS feed on this site is located right at the top of the sidebar.

Why do all the posts have “Read the Rest of this Entry…” on them?

To keep the downward scrolling to a minimum while still getting a nice assortment of new stories on the front page of the site, only the first paragraph or two of each communique is initially visible. However, each communique has its very own page, so when you click on that link at the end of the truncated version, you will get the entire entry. You will also be able to print the communique using the “Print this Post” link at the end of the communique or article.

What are the “tags” at the end of each entry?

Tags are simply keywords used to help find similar stories. As each communique is posted, the webmaster looks for words or themes that may help readers find what they are looking for later, such as all the communiques that reference the 2010 Olympics.

How do I find what I’m looking for?

  • For communiques from a specific officer or standing committee – simply click on their role under “Resources”
  • For entries from a specific month or year – click on the year under “Archives” and the individual months will appear; then click on the month and you will get all the entries for that month.
  • For everything else – use the “Search” box right below the “Subscribe to this Site” link in the sidebar.

About the Catholic Women’s League

How do I become a member?

All women, age 16 and up, are invited to take out membership in the Catholic Women’s League of Canada through their local parish. We offer both regular memberships for Catholic women, and Associate memberships for non-Catholics. Please see our National website for more information on membership.

How many members are there?

In British Columbia, we are edging closer and closer to 10,000 CWL members. In the whole of Canada, our membership is approximately 100,000.

What is the League Prayer?

We humbly pray You, O God our Father,
to bless The Catholic Women’s League of Canada.

Bless our beloved country,
our homes and families.

Send Your Holy Spirit upon us
to give light to our minds
and strength to our wills
that we may know and fulfil
Your great law of charity.

Teach us to share with others
at home and abroad,
the good things You have given us.

This we ask through Our Lord Jesus Christ
and the intercession of our patroness,
Our Lady of Good Counsel.

Where can I find prayers or programs to use in our CWL council?

The National website has many programs and prayers available for download that are excellent resources for all members.
