CCW – Council of Catholic Women


Letter to the Women of CCW

Dear Women of St. Giles:

Life has been uncertain. And it may continue to be uncertain for a while. As we continue day by day, week by week, month by month and in the year ahead – one thing that isn’t uncertain is our community of faith. It is here for us. And we are all part of the community of St. Giles Parish. It is the beauty of community – we can be both a part of it and draw strength from it.

Inside the community of St. Giles is also our community of women, CCW.  We are here to serve and support our Church, support and encourage one another and others and celebrate our faith together.  We invite you, in whatever way you can, to join in the community of CCW. There are many events and activities that will be planned throughout the year.  We hope the activities inspire experiences of service, faith, friendship and, of course, community.  Please join us!

This message below is from Pope Francis on Pentecost Sunday resonates with value and importance of coming together:

“Let us ask the Spirit for the gift of unity, for only if we live as brothers and sisters can we spread the spirit of fraternity. We cannot ask others to be united if we ourselves take different paths. So let us pray for one another; let us each feel responsible for the other.”

Warm regards,
Peggy Connerty and Theresa Atchley
