St. Patrick's CCW

Council of Catholic Women


The purpose of the Council of Catholic Women (CCW) is to unite the women of the parish through spiritual, educational and social activities. Our services include helping our parish and community through different fundraisers and collections.


Also CCW is a "larger than parish" organization. It participates in NCCW (National Council of Catholic Women) and WUCWO (World Union of Catholic Women's Organizations). All women of the parish are welcome at meetings and activities. Please join us for our upcoming events. Feel free to volunteer for one of the OPEN commissions. We would appreciate if if you would share your time and talents with us.

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel


God of heavenly wisdom, you have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus, to be our guide and counselor. Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.

O Mother of Good Counsel, patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous, and loving leaders of the Church. Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son. May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God's creation, and compassion for all God's children. May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God's gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come. Amen.
