Administrative history

Founded by Margaret Fletcher (1862-1943). In 1906 a national Catholic conference was held in Brighton, and permission was given to distribute a pamphlet about the proposed league. By 1907, the Catholic Women's League had held its first general meeting under the presidency of the Archbishop of Westminster, and has sent from there a message of filial homage tp His Holiness Pope Pius X and received through Cardinal Merry del Val the Holy Father's affectionate blessing.
