Council of Catholic Women



About The Council of Catholic Women:  Christ the King Parish Council is part of the National Council of Catholic Women - a federation that was established at the request of the U.S. Bishops in 1921.  CCW has a long history of service to the Church in America and has a membership of millions of Catholic women across the country, in over 7,000 Catholic women’s organizations.  Our Council is part to the Joliet Diocesan Council.

Mission Statement:  The goal of CCW is to provide spiritual and educational growth for the women of the parish and also to provide social and service opportunities for its members to use their talents to nurture one another and benefit the community.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of the month, September thru May.  In addition to a variety of programs, we support several projects throughout the year.  Please watch this space or the Bulletin for information about meetings, programs and activities.

Membership:  All of the women in the parish are members automatically.  An optional donation of $10 is appreciated to help support our fundraising efforts. 

Benefits:  You will make friends, learn something new, have fun, feel more connected with the parish and have an opportunity to make a difference.

The Significa is a Newsletter that is put out by the East-South Dupage Deanery of the Council of Catholic Women, Diocese of Joliet. They have their own web page on the Diocesan web site www.dioceseofjoliet/ccw.
