Council of Catholic Women (CCW)

As an affiliate of the National Council of Catholic Women, the Holy Apostles Council of Catholic Women (CCW) works to support, empower, and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership, and service. Our CCW meets the second Monday of each month from September through May. Each meeting begins with a Mass, and continues with a business meeting where we discuss current CCW activities. The CCW is a wonderful way to meet other ladies in our parish and to become more involved in parish life. We strive to learn more about our Catholic faith and often invite guest speakers to help inspire us in our lives as Catholic women.
