We are very pleased to introduce to you the Council of Catholic Women (CCW) affiliate at St. Vincent de Paul Parish. We are part of the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW), an organization representing millions of Catholic women throughout the United States. We are also active in the Orlando Diocese Council of Catholic Women (ODCCW) and are one of six (6) participating affiliates in the Northern Deanery (of the Orlando Diocese) Council of Catholic Women (NDCCW). Our patroness is Our Lady of Good Counsel (shown here).
The primary purpose of the CCW is the unification of all women in religious, educational, social, and service activities for the glory of God. To this end, we assist in a variety of spiritual and material undertakings for the welfare of the parish, our community, our diocese, and beyond.
We are involved in many parish activities and sponsor special events throughout the year. Some activities include an ongoing service project of creating children’s clothes and prayer shawls, an annual parish event/fundraiser, a pre-Lenten morning of reflection, an annual fashion show, hosting the annual Lenten Soup Suppers, and partnering with other parish ministries to assist them as the need arises. We support charities that promote the needs of women and children, the local food pantry and soup kitchen, seminarians, Catholic Charities programs within our Orlando Diocese, and NCCW national projects. The St. Vincent de Paul CCW normally meets on the last Tuesday of each month from September through April (except December) in the social hall with a variety of speakers, socials, and presentations on informative topics. We publish a monthly newsletter and include announcements of CCW events in the weekly parish bulletin, on the in-church message boards, from the ambo before Mass, on the parish website, and within our MyParish app.
We hope that you take advantage of the spiritual, service, and leadership ministerial opportunities that our St. Vincent de Paul CCW offers and encourage you to become actively involved in our diverse and dedicated ministry. You will meet and work with some of the most wonderful, caring, sharing women in all of Central Florida!!
Our motto for this year is: Every tree is known by its own fruit. [Luke 6:44]…….how will we know you????
