Council of Catholic Women (CCW)

Get Excited and Get Involved


 Mission:   St Petronille's Council of Catholic Women (CCW), comprised of all St Petronille Parish women, provides opportunities to gather in the Catholic Spirit for fellowship, service, and spiritual enrichment.  With this vision in mind, CCW aims to raise funds for both parish and community needs.  The women of CCW sponsor activities and events that provide parish fellowship, community fellowship, spiritual enrichment and fundraising. To learn more about the various CCW activities and events please read the descriptions below.  

These committees are in need of volunteers to make the events a success.  We encourage you to join us at a monthly member meeting and to get involved in whatever way your gifts lead you!  Monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (September-May).  We’d like to get to know you! Share your time and talent with CCW. If you’re interested in volunteering and attending a CCW event(s), please contact one of the Co-Vice Presidents. The CCW Board is responsible for planning and organizing these events, and board membership changes every year in the summer, so if you are interested in becoming more involved at the board level, please contact one of our Co-Presidents.  We’d love for you to get involved and Catch the Spirit of CCW!
