Catholic Council of Women (CCW) The National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) acts through its affiliated organizations to support, empower, and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership, and service.  CCW programs respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society in the modern world. In our affiliation we offer many opportunities: to develop spirituality, learn more about current issues, share with women of like values, care for those in need through community outreach, advocate on vital legislation, and encourage women to attend dynamic workshops and conventions. On a local level, the CCW is involved in receptions, retreats, funeral dinners and various other activities around the church.  Contact: Shelly Johns

Stewardship/Events Committee  The Stewardship/Events committee and our parishioners love to have a good time – getting together with the larger community to enjoy each other’s company and to celebrate our achievements and successes. Our Event Planning Committee makes these get-togethers possible, planning such events like our annual Glo Golf, Holy Smoke Off, Fish Frys and Fall Festival (in conjunction with other committees). Committee members help coordinate all aspects of these events. If you have a passion for putting on an amazing event, are good at coordinating details and thinking ahead, or simply love to roll up your sleeves and help with whatever needs to be done, we would love to have another member with just as much energy and enthusiasm as we do join us.  

  • Time Commitment:  1-2 events per year, as your schedule allows.
  • Responsibilities:  Varies depending on the event, but generally includes helping with coordination, execution, and planning of church events.
  • Training:  No training required.  Contact: Chad Bauder - activities@howardcountycatholics.com
