Note from Omaha Province Director on NCCW

As your Omaha Province Director, I attended the NCCW Board of Directors meeting January 19-20, 2019 at Washington, DC. The Board meeting included prayer services, Masses, reports from officers, Committees, Associates of NCCW and UN/WUWCO, Commissions and an NCCW Office report. The Commissions spent a day with development of work previously undertaken through emails and monthly conference calls. I serve on the Spirituality, Liturgy and Purse Auction Committees. Prior to the board meeting, I, along with NCCW Board Members who arrived early, took part in Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and the March for Life.

I urge you to send representatives from the arch/diocese, deaneries and parishes to the 2019 NCCW Convention which is in Atlanta, GA August 21-24. Much information can be brought back to the A/DCCW, Deaneries/Subdivisions, and CCW groups! Attending convention is also a wonderful spiritual experience where you can network with many ladies not from all over the US. Early Bird Registration ($300) is March 1-June 1. Register at https://www.nccw.org.

We strive to build the number of NCCW affiliates and individual members to keep NCCW vibrant. Being affiliated with NCCW, we are a part of a national organization that speaks for our Catholic values and supports, empowers and educates all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership and service.
