The Catholic Women's League of Canada (“CWL”) is a national organization of Canadian Catholic women which promotes Catholic values at all levels of government and within their communities.

The first Catholic Women’s League National Conference was held in Montreal in 1920, so Happy 100th Anniversary. The CWL council at Good Shepherd Parish was founded in 1982. The council participates in all national CWL initiatives including the current national initiative of “Care for Our Common Home,” which is in response to the papal encyclical, Laudato Si.

Good Shepherd CWL has approximately 120 members, and our focus is on caring for our parish, provincial and national communities. We purchase necessary supplies for the cloistered Carmelite Monastery in Devon, so those sisters can continue their important work of praying for our community.

We also support the progression of new priests by sponsoring a seminarian from Newman Theological College and also making donations to the Newman Theological Foundation Fund. We cook for the Soup and Buns kitchen, which is a program started by Edmonton westend churches to provide prepared meals to Jasper Place Wellness Centre.

We support the youth of our community by offering an annual Christian Life Award to a Grade 9 and Grade 12 student from our parish.

We are a pro-life organization. We support young moms and dads, who have made their precious decision to keep their children, by collecting household items, clothing items, and providing financial support to the TERRA and Our Lady of Grace programs. We also support other pro-life organizations such as the Back Porch Ministry and the March for Life.

We support young Catholic girls by sponsoring the Catholic Girls’ League which teaches faith and leadership skills to the young girls (9 to 16 years of age) within our parish. Along with the Catholic Girls League we have made annual visits to the Jasper Place Continuing Care Centre to entertain the residents with joyful Christmas carols. For more than 10 years we have sponsored a young child thru the Catholic International Aid Charity, Chalice. We support victims of domestic violence as they rebuild their lives by supporting safe housing programs such as Wings of Providence.

We support the needy within our community by volunteering and providing financial support to local organizations such as Sign of Hope, St. Vincent de Paul, and the Hope Mission.

We have hosted forums for candidates seeking election as Catholic School Trustee and MLA. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel our annual Fall Fair and Market, which was an important parish event, but also our main annual fundraiser. This year we are hosting this 50/50 draw in lieu of our annual Fall Fair activities such as selling apple pies, perogies, variety of baking, hosting the silent auction, and selling raffle tickets. We hope you will support us by purchasing some 50/50 tickets so we can continue to care for our common home – our parish community, our province, and our country!
