Catholic Women’s League

In 1906, at a Catholic conference held in Cavendish Square, a small group of women proposed the idea to form an association of Catholic Women with the aim of giving weight to and promoting Catholic principles in social and national life. A year later, Miss Margaret Fletcher was selected as the first leader of the League.

The League today is still flourishing and proving to be every bit the “weapon for God” that Margaret Fletcher first envisioned.

We had a very active CWL in the Parish until comparatively recently. Father Behr would be happy to give his support, should a group wish to re-establish itself in Tenterden.
