St. John the Apostle Council of Catholic Women

The purpose of the Council of Catholic Women shall be to unite the women of the Parish Community in assisting the Pastor in a common purpose, direction and action, for spiritual, educational, civic and social endeavors.

All women of the parish, 18 years and older, belong to the CCW and are invited to come together for prayer, companionship, and fun at monthly meetings from September through May.  Many events and activities are planned during the year to bring women together for charity work, spiritual growth and friendship.  In addition, CCW sponsors many parish events and supports others with hospitality.  All women are encouraged to attend and actively participate.
