“For the Honour and Glory of God”
The inaugural meeting of the Catholic Daughters of Australia (CDA), now known as the Catholic Women’s League (CWL) of Queensland, was held on the 10th September 1927. From this humble beginning, the League in Queensland has grown to become a vital part of the life of the Church in Queensland and the wider community. Our members engage in an extraordinary range of activities throughout the length and breadth of our State. Each of our Branches contributes something special to our work. We are also involved on the national and international stage through our membership of CWLA.
