The Catholic Women's Leage (CWL) is a nationwide Catholic organization for women founded in 1919.  The MQAP’'s CWL unit was organized in 1986.

        - Pursuing the advocacy of Christian womanhood, fostering value formation, strengthening families.

 

The Catholic Women’s League was organized a day before the canonical installation of Rev. Fr. Guilio F. Mariani, PIME.  The CWL  is a charitable, religious, socio-economic, civic, non-political, and non-profit organization through which Catholic women can find a means of growth in Faith and have the opportunity for organized work and concerted effort in the exercise of their vocation and apostolate as the laity. The CWL, whose acronym means Charity, Work, and Loyalty, has for its objectives the following:

 

·                     To promote self-sanctification and that of others;

·                     To unite Catholic women in a national organization for the promotion of the spiritual, moral, educational and socio-economic welfare of the country;

·                     To provide a medium through which Catholic women may uphold the Faith and act as one in matters affecting the advancement of women and the youth; the sanctity of the home , and the total  development of the self,  family and community.

·                     To foster ecumenical relations with other women’s organizations on local,  regional, and international level.

·                     To participate in evangelization and the Christian  renewal of society  as approved by the Church.

 

During the past years, one of the League’s  projects is the Free Medical/Dental Clinic  which serves poor families living in depressed areas every Sunday.  This project was  transferred later to the permanent Parish Medical/Dental Clinic.
