The St. Batholomew’s Parish Council of Catholic Women (PCCW) acts through its membership to support, empower and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership and service. The St. Bartholomew’s PCCW program responds with gospel values to the needs of the church and society in the modern world.
WHAT WE DO
We are an organization with many missions. All women of our parish are members and encouraged to become active. A yearly dues of $3.00 is recommended. For those of us over age of 60 the dues are $2.00. Included in the dues is a name tag if you choose. We are putting the face of the PCCW out to the community by wearing them at our sponsored events. It is worthwhile and spiritually rewarding. A monthly meeting is held on the second Tuesday of each month, September through May. Our major fundraising event is the Fall Festival held on the second Sunday of October. All parishioners are encouraged to volunteer and help support the event.
The proceeds from the Fall Festival are used to provide financial support to various local and international organizations.
