Join US!

When the USCCB created the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) in 1920, they did so knowing that over 200 other Catholic women’s Organizations were already in existence.

According to NCCW and the U.S. Bishops, if a parish has women working together - whether they call it a Council of Catholic Women or they call it the Funeral Lunch Committee or Altar Society or Rosary Group or the Young Mother’s Group ~ it is a council of Catholic women.
