Council of Catholic Women (CCW)
Ministry Contact: Donna Piscitelli
The Saint Lawrence Parish Council of Catholic Women (CCW) serves as the means through which all the women of the parish can unite to help support both the Pastor and parish goals, further their own talents, nourish their spiritual needs, and be of service to the parish family. Our CCW is a chapter of the Arlington Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, a national organization. Speakers are frequently invited to the monthly meetings which are usually held on the third Sunday of the month at 2:00 PM in Hammond Hall. Every woman in the parish is a member of the CCW. Our CCW chapter is under the patronage of Our Lady of Good Counsel.
Did you know that the following ministries are carried out by the women of our CCW?
Bereavement Ministry, Pro-Life baby shower, feeding the homeless at Christ House and at Carpenter Shelter, Rosary Makers, the collection of money and non-perishable food items on Share Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas Baskets, organizing and running many of the parish receptions and gatherings, and many other events through out the year. Please explore these ministries on the other ministry pages here on the website.
The Council of Catholic Women awards an annual scholarship for one young woman in her senior year of high school. Please see Scholarship Information and Application.
