MISSION STATEMENT


The St. Dominic/St. Francis Council of Catholic Women, under the guidance of Our Lady of Good Counsel, acts to support, empower and educate its members in spirituality, leadership and service.  The Council of Catholic Women (CCW) programs respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society in the modern world.

Commissions of the Council

The mission of the Council of Catholic Women is carried out through the work of six commissions:

The Church Commission reinforces faith and supports service to the Church and to the world through discipleship and spiritual growth.

The Family Concerns Commission supports and enhances family life within the Church and society.

The Community Concerns Commission engages the members of CCW, and all people, in working to address the needs and concerns of their individual communities.

 


 

The International Concerns Commission promotes responsibility for the world community through the conviction that our wealth and resources must be shared with all.

The Legislation Commission encourages legislative advocacy at the local, state, and national levels, guided by Catholic social teaching.

The Organization Commission provides organization development, opportunities for training, public relations resources, and publications to strengthen leadership.

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.
