Our Mission:

The National Council of Catholic Women acts through its members to support, empower, and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership, and service. NCCW programs respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society in the modern world.

National Day of Fasting
On this, NCCW’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting to End Hunger, we ask You Father to hold in Your arms those in most need.  Give them the shelter, protection, and nourishment when they most need it.  Grant us the strength, will, and ability to do our part to help those that go without.  As always, we lift this prayer up through the intercession of your Blessed Mother and our Patroness, Our Lady of Good Counsel.  Amen.

Our President, Maribeth Stewart Blogoslawski, has created a questionnaire through the World Union of Catholic Women's Organizations that focuses on issues surrounding addiction.  Please take the time to fill out this important questionnaire and send your completed form to jastewart01@att.net.  Thank you for your participation!
