Waly is a village and a commune in the Meuse department in Grand Est in north-eastern France. It is the only village in the commune.
The Church of St. Catherine in Waly was consecrated September 26, 1897 by the Bishop of Verdun. In Gothic Revival style, the building contains some carved furniture. The church is disproportionally large, considering the small size of the village.
