That through study, members of the League better understand the Church's teachings and the ways in which Christ may be made known in society today.

That through the League's programs, members gain greater understanding of the liturgy, nourish their faith and gain spiritual strength to joyfully fulfill their mission.

That through active participation in the League's Standing Committees, memebers have many opportunities to give good example and leadership in the formation and expression of Christian attitudes and principles.

That as the League is dedicated to the preservation of Christian family life, League members help strengthen Canadian families.

That League membership gives all women in Canada an opportunity to communicate; to develop a better understanding of their varied cultures and to have concern for all Canadians.

That through the League, members help 'change the world' by assistance in parish, community and country; and become global citizens in the world community through assistance to Development and Peace and through affiliation with the World Union of Catholic WOmen's Organizations.
