The Catholic Women’s League


The Catholic Women’s League was founded in Kenilworth in 1952. Today we have a membership of 34 ladies and enjoy a wide and varied programme of activities. Our meetings are lively and there is a speaker, either secular or non secular, most months. An annual outing takes place each August. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 8pm at the Parish Centre, St Francis of Assisi, Kenilworth. For further details contact Section Secretary, Mrs Teresa Adams, 14 Common Lane, Kenilworth, 01926 858199, or e-mail

League History

The Catholic Women’s League (CWL), is a charitable organisation founded by Margaret Fletcher, a convert, to unite Catholic lay women in a bond of friendship and to encourage them to use their talents in the service of the Church. The Catholic Women’s League’s mission since its formation in 1906 has been to educate and encourage Catholic women to play a role in the work of the Church at parish, diocesan, national and international levels.

If you are interested in being involved in a forward looking organisation, with opportunities to discuss contemporary issues and spend time on spiritual matters, while also having a great deal of fun.

Our work varies from support for the parish priest, to implementing the Bishops’ initiatives, especially with regard to the family. We concern ourselves with social issues such as the plight of asylum seekers, ecumenism, bio-ethics and women’s role in society. Contacts are maintained with sister organisations in other countries, the United Nations and Vatican Commissions, through our participation on the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations. We also have links with women’s organisations in other churches.
