A message from our National President –

Dear Members

I am sure we have all seen the devastation caused in Australia by the bush fires. I have just sent a message to Catholic Women’s League in Australia sending them our thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. I am sure there are many of you like me with friends and family in Australia and we must particularly remember them . Our very own National Treasurer is visiting her son and family in Sydney so we wish her a safe trip .
26th January is Australia Day and as it is a Sunday can I ask you all please when you go to Mass on that day in particular you offer a special prayer at Communion for all those in Australia effected in way by these terrible fires .

Thank you and God Bless

National President CWL England and Wales

A healthy planet depends on all of us 2019

Oh God our Father, we call on you to send your Holy Spirit to inspire us to care for our beloved planet in a way that protects our waterways, oceans, flora and fauna and promotes sustainable human development that depends on these. We know that we are at times careless in these matters and we ask for your help to become more like Jesus Christ in our care for our wonderful home and world of nature as well as our compassion for our brothers and sisters who are most vulnerable. We recall that Jesus Christ will come at the end of time and we pray that He will find that we have been good stewards of creation.

We make this prayer through the same Christ our Lord.    Amen.
