Honor Women on Mother's Day
For Mother’s Day, honor your mother, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, aunt, niece, godmother or any woman who has played an important role in your life by making a contribution in their honor to the National Council of Catholic Women. Those we honor will be remembered in Masses celebrated on Mother's Day weekend at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.
NCCW has maintained a very strong connection to the shrine over the years highlighted by our donation of Mary's Garden on the grounds of the Shrine. Mary's Garden is a beautiful sanctuary for visitors and students of Catholic University to gather in prayer before a fountain and beautiful statue of our beloved Mother, Mary. Donations we receive will be split between NCCW and the Basilica for their continued care of Mary's Garden.
A minimum donation of $20 per name is requested. Please send your form listing the name of the woman (or women) you would like remembered directly to the NCCW office using the form attached. If you wish to let those you are honoring know of your special remembrance, please send their name(s) and address(es) along with your donation and a prayer card with a picture of Mary's statue in the garden will be sent to them with a note that a donation has been made in their honor by you (or you may request your gift be given anonymously). Forms must be postmarked no later than May 5th.
