Message from National President Fran Lucas

December 31, 2022

The Catholic Women’s League of Canada and its more than 63,000 members are saddened to hear of the passing of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

As a servant of God and church for eight years (2005-2013), his time as pope ended when he chose to step down, a first time action in more than 600 years. His gentle way and work for a fraternal world will be warmly remembered.

May he rest in peace.

Fran Lucas
National President and Chairperson of International Relations
