Council of Catholic Women (CCW)

Get Excited and Get Involved



St. Petronille's Council of Catholic Women (CCW) provides opportunities to gather in the Catholic Spirit for fellowship, service, and spiritual enrichment. The women of CCW sponsor philanthropic activities like Adopt-a-Family for Christmas, dinners and bagged lunches for PADS, and help facilitate donations to the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry from parishioners and students. We are responsible for honoring the Woman of Year, and choosing scholarship recipients for Catholic High Schools. CCW also coordinates Donut Sundays, Men’s Trivia Night and the annual Christmas Soiree. We have a Board of 12 that meets monthly during the school year, and we host a Kickoff meeting each September where our members have the opportunity to sign up for activities throughout the year. New members are welcome any time! Please take this opportunity to join CCW or renew your membership online now!
