Council of Catholic Women




St. Mary Council of Catholic Women, under the guidance of Our Lady of Good Counsel, seeks 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.

President's Welcome

As president of the St. Mary Council of Catholic Women, I warmly invite all the women of the parish to join us as we begin a new CCW year in September.

Registration for returning and new members will be on Sunday, September 1, and coincide with the annual Welcome Back Mass at 9:30 a.m. followed by a brunch in the Church Hall.

On that day, the membership committee will be in the Narthex to share displays of past activities, answer your questions and distribute registration forms. It only costs $15 to join. General meetings are usually held the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Parish Hall.

Please come and see all the great things we do. Watch this website and the bulletin for more information on programs for the coming year.

We hope to see you. The Board is once again planning a wonderful year.

Martha Fahey
President, St. Mary Council of Catholic Women





We begin our meetings with the following prayer to our Mother Mary under the title of Our Lady of Good Counsel.


Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

God of heavenly wisdom, you have given to 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
