Blessings of the Season


Days of Gratitude and Days of Joy


May you rejoice in the miracle, the gift and the promise of Christmas

Thank you for your generous support of the Catholic Women’s Leadership Foundation.

We are pleased to announce because of your generosity the initial year long Leadership Program for Canadian Catholic women will happen May 2018 to June 2019.

The first cohort of women will be selected early in the new year. The Program will be facilitated by the Providence School of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality, Saint Paul University, Ottawa.

Thank you for being with us as we bring to reality our vision of “a just, merciful, and compassionate world nurtured by the genius of women”.

Thank you for helping us build future Catholic women leaders who will make a difference in the world and witness our values as Catholic women.

Wishing you the Love, Peace and Happiness that the true meaning of Christmas brings from the Board of Directors of The Catholic Women’s Leadership Foundation.
