Women of the Council of Catholic Women are dedicated to being a part of the parish community as well as the organization as a whole - world wide. This is achieved by being supportive of each other, praying for the needs of the people of the parish, serving the parish with their talents and interests, and being involved in the ministries that they are called to. In addition to the many parish activities the Council is involved in, they also help out at the Soup Kitchen and run the Holy Name Thrift Shop. The Thrift Shop is a project taken on by the Council to help the needy of the parish as well as raise extra funds for the parish.
