Onslow Catholic Women’s League (CWL)

The Onslow Catholic Women’s League has been active for more than 50 years; it has a representative on the National Council of Women, and is affiliated to the World Union of Catholic Women's Organisations.  

The CWL motto is ‘Faith and Service’, and this is carried out within the Parish and the wider Church Community.   Meetings are held regularly, usually on the 4th Tuesday of each month at St Benedict’s Church, Khandallah, and we occasionally join up for shared meetings with our sister branch in Karori.

Each year all the branches of the CWL in New Zealand collect funds for the ‘At Home’ Appeal, donating money to the Appeal from our various fund-raising ventures. Onslow CWL also supports our Mission Station in Lomary, in Fiji, by sending money to make the lives of the schoolchildren and the nuns that little bit easier.

Any women from the parish are warmly invited to attend our meetings, and new members are very welcome.
