2017 NCCW Our Lady of Good Counsel Award 


By Joan McGrath

The Our Lady of Good Counsel Award honors an exceptional member of NCCW who exemplifies what is best about the National Council of Catholic Women.

Recipients of this award have made a significant difference within their local council, community and beyond. Only active, faith-filled NCCW members who have a sincere commitment to service, mentoring, welcome and justice in a multi-cultural church are nominated. Through a blind selection process, one remarkable woman is chosen and announced at the NCCW Convention.

All materials for the 2017 Our Lady of Good Counsel Award nomination process will be posted on the NCCW Website by January 15, 2017. Completed packets will be accepted in the NCCW office from March 13 through April 24, 2017.
