What We Do
The Catholic Women’s League of Corpus Christi is at the service of the Parish Community and our wider community of Thunder Bay. We are involved in many programs and ministries: assisting as liturgical ministers in our celebrations, providing opportunities for fellowship through our projects and gatherings, as well as spiritual support through special prayer services held throughout the year.
When We Meet
The general meeting is held on the first Tuesday of the month in the Parish Hall.

We humbly pray you, O God our Father, to bless The Catholic Women’s League of Canada. Bless our beloved country, our homes, and families. Send your Holy Spirit upon us to give light to our minds and strength to our wills, that we may know and fulfill your great law of charity. Teach us to share with others at home and abroad, the good things you have given us. This we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ and intercession of our patroness, Our Lady of Good Counsel. Amen.
