WINNIPEG, Manitoba—December 8, 2015—Salt + Light Television premiered The Catholic Women’s League of Canada documentary, Woman on a Mission, on Sunday, December 6, 2015, at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.

The documentary, produced by Salt + Light Television, follows League members at the 95th annual national convention in Vancouver held in August 2015. It explores how members are making a difference in their churches, at home and abroad, while also exploring the role of women in the Catholic church.

“One thing this documentary shows is how a national convention educates, informs and unites League members—young and old—to celebrate their accomplishments and hear about future directions,” said National Second Vice-President and Chairperson of Communications Fran Lucas. “It shows how through long-term initiatives and other new ones, such as the parish-based Catholic Girls League, the organization continues to appeal to Catholic women. I would anticipate this documentary speaking to the hearts of women who are not yet League members to help them realize the work they can be a part of and to help them find fulfilment in that action by joining the League.”

The Catholic Women’s League of Canada has almost 85,000 members across Canada working in their parishes, communities, dioceses, provinces and country on issues impacting the Catholic faith, including legislation and resolutions, community life, Christian family life, education and health, spiritual development and the issue of pornography. The documentary will re-air several times throughout the Christmas season.
“Our thanks go out to the sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame and those archbishops and bishops who so generously donated to make this documentary a reality,” noted Ms. Lucas.
