Council of Catholic Women

The CCW Mission is to unite all the women of Holy Ghost Parish in spiritual, educational and social activities. Holy Ghost CCW has been able to help the church, community and even the world through the work of the women who are active members. The Council promotes true community among the women in the parish with monthly events.  It also plans and executes outreach efforts, serving those in need throughout the local community. The group meets on the 2nd Tuesday of most months with special events throughout the year. All women in the parish are automatically members of the Council of Catholic Women and are invited to become more involved in this important organization.   You are welcome at any time to attend our meetings and functions.
