The Catholic women’s League of Canada is a national organization, rooted in Gospel values, calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God. Our meetings are held usually on the third Monday of the month following the 7pm Mass, which is offered for the intentions of the Catholic Women’s League members. The meetings consist of prayer and spiritual reflection, information, perhaps a guest speaker, and always fellowship and treats. Our membership drive is in the fall. We encourage all women of the Parish to join. Membership dues are $25. We realize that not all members can attend meetings and be very involved in the work that the Catholic Women’s League does in the community, but your membership is still important. At the National level the Catholic Women’s League has a great deal of influence...

Belleville has two St. Vincent de Paul groups that work together but have very different ways of helping the poor.
Most people are aware of the St. Vincent de Paul Warehouse at 205 Coleman Street. The store accepts second hand clothing, furniture, books and household items. These goods are then sold to anyone who wishes to buy them.
The second group is made up of members from the three Belleville Catholic Churches. This group is divided into teams and each week a team picks up phone calls from people in need of furniture, food or clothing. Two people visit the person in their home to see the need and take some history. The members then try to get the requests from the Warehouse or other sources. They can refer the person to the Food Bank, Community Trust or Credit Counselling. The group meets...
