Council of Catholic Women

 

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Our Council is dedicated to Our Lady of Good Counsel, Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women.  Under her guidance we are dedicated to support, empower and educate women in spirituality, leadership, and service.

President's Welcome

   Thank you for checking out our website.  We welcome all women of St. Mary Parish to join us at the monthly meetings and other varied events.  Our monthly schedule is listed in the Bulletin.

   We really love and care about you and Our Church.  In fellowship we join each other on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Church Hall to share programs which help us to grow spiritually and socially and focus on today’s world, too.

   There are many ways to share your strengths and talents.  We begin and end each meeting with prayer.  We bring and share snacks.  By getting involved in activities, you will have the opportunity to make many dear friends.

  OUR LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL



When our Council gathers we turn to Mary
invoking her intercession with the following prayer.

The banner pictured here was donated by Lore
Griffiths in memory of her mother, Sophia Pryes, and her mother-in-law, Anita Griffiths. Lore was president from 2008 - 2010.

 

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

   God of heavenly wisdom, you have given to us Mary Mother of Jesus to be our guide and counselor. Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.

   O Mother of Good Counsel, Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us that we may be wise, courageous, and loving leaders of the Church.

   Help us, dear Mother to know the mind of Jesus, your son.

   May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God’s creation and compassion for all God’s children.

   May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come.

Amen.
