Case Studies

Members of the Catholic Women’s League are united in faith, but wonderfully diverse in terms of our age, location, life experiences and lifestyle.

The reasons why we joined CWL and what we get out of our membership are equally diverse, so we have asked a few ladies to let us know a little bit about themselves, why they joined CWL or what they love about our League.

“I joined the CWL a lot of years ago because my Mother was in it – not the best reason for joining anything, and I had no real plans on staying for long.  However, I met people, I learned about the area where I lived, I helped with so many events, and enjoyed the company of the Ladies in our group.  When my husband was ill and eventually died, I would not have got through those dreadful months without their strength, support and friendship.  My Mum knew what she was doing and I am so glad I ‘stayed’. The CWL has been, and still is, a huge part of my life”


“We had just moved to the area and I was invited to a CWL meeting by one of my new neighbours. I had heard of the CWL but I did not think it was for me. I preferred somewhere with a bit of life. How wrong was I! What a wonderful way to make new friends when you know
no-one.  For the last 30 years, we have shared together fun, laughter, friendships and the ups and downs of life.  How glad I am I went that first evening”
