This Committee coordinates the League’s efforts to assist missionaries, in Australia and overseas, in their work.
Over the years we have provided financial aid and material support to missions in the Kimberleys, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste , Kiribati and other Pacific island nations, Kenya and Tanzania.
Addressing social justice and ethical questions has been one of the primary tasks of the Catholic Women's League since it was founded. We seek to influence legislative and administrative bodies at all levels of government in order to preserve the dignity of the human person. The League also actively promotes a culture of life.
The Horizon is our official magazine. It has been in continuous publication since October 1916 when its price was just one penny! Articles written in the first issue by Mary Glowrey, Anna Brennan and Eileen Fitzgerald would not have been out of place in the current edition of The Horizon.
The headquarters of the Catholic Women’s League of Victoria and Wagga Wagga is located at Mary Glowrey House, a spacious Victorian home ideally situated at 132-134 Nicholson St. Fitzroy, opposite the beautiful Carlton Gardens. This facility also provides short-term, low-cost accommodation for people from rural and regional areas undergoing medical treatment or visiting relatives in city hospitals.
