In 1988, the League received two generous donations in response to the call for lay formation in Pope John Paul II’s Exhortation, Christifideles Laici. In light of the expressed desire of the League to encourage members’ service “For God and Canada,” the national executive agreed by motion that these donations be used to establish a bursary fund.
The bursary fund is used to provide financial assistance to members pursuing studies, courses, seminars, workshops and diploma/degree programs in areas of, spiritual growth, adult faith formation, youth ministry, ministry to patients in palliative care, ministry to shut-ins, parliamentary procedure and literacy tutoring.
Bursary applications are available upon request from national office or can be downloaded from cwl.ca.
