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.

Joliet Diocese Council of Catholic Women Convention
On Oct. 17, 2020, JDCCW will hold our biennial convention at the Blanchette Catholic Center in Crest Hill with the theme “Grace is a Gift.” Our National Council of Catholic Women president, Jean Kelly, will be joining us as well as two excellent speakers: Fr. Domenic Roscioli and Jane Knuth. It will be a great day to learn, share, pray and socialize, wrapping up with Mass in the Xavier Chapel, the installation of new officers and a dinner at Prairie Bluff Golf Club in Lockport.
