Shrewsbury ... shall be a name 'as stirring to the heart as the glories we have lost'

Blessed John Henry Newman, 1852

Catholic Associations

Catholic Women’s League

The Catholic Women’s League is a national and international organisation of women who take an active role within the Church. This is done through practical support, friendship and fund-raising for various charities. Members are kept aware of social and current issues and support refugees, families of service personnel and some are involved in catechetical work both in parishes and prisons. The Catholic Women’s League welcomes women of all ages who wish to use their talents and skills within the parish, diocese and wider community. Groups meet together socially, for prayer and to discuss current issues.
