Welcome to the Prince Edward Island Catholic Women’s League Website

The Catholic Women’s League on Prince Edward Island consists of 34 councils representing approximately 2100 members. This membership is part of a National membership of over 86,000 members all working “For God and Canada.”

The first council to be organized on PEI was the Charlottetown Council (then called sub-division) in the summer of 1921 with 107 charter members. From this early beginning, interest in this organization of Catholic women blossomed into what it is today.

Our National Theme, Inspired by the Spirit, Women Respond to God”s Call, is lived out on Prince Edward Island by focusing on Mental Health and Palliative Care.  We have been actively involved with Mental Health issues and are also keenly aware and supportive of Hospice and Palliative Care.  We also continue to focus on Right to Life.
