Hear Ye, Hear Ye!  We’re celebrating the 100th anniversary of National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) March 4, 2020!  It’s the 89th year of the Grand Island Diocesan Council of Catholic Women (DCCW)!  We all  have Lots to be thankful for!

If you were having a baby you’d be sharing the news to all your friends~!  If you were getting married, the same~!  If you were having a new grandbaby, you’d be shouting it from the rooftops!  You have a WORLD OF BLESSINGS AT YOUR DOOR, just waiting to be opened!   Let the women in your area know you can give them a ride to the next Lenten Retreat, Spring Assembly, Deanery CCW meeting, whatever!  Be a friend in Christ & help find a way to spread the love & gifts of the spirit!

We all need to be Proud of the work the Council of Catholic Women do on your parish, deanery, diocesan & national level.  Don’t hide or be shy about sharing how these women can get involved.  BE PROUD OF WHO WE ARE TOGETHER & encourage others to step up and serve the Lord. Communication & Membership will bloom in every parish by email or phone calling upcoming events & service projects.
