Every Catholic woman is a member of the Council of Catholic Women. Our parish's Council of Catholic Women (CCW) is affiliated with the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) and the Duluth Diocesan Council of Catholic Women (DDCCW).
As a service organization, we support many international, national and local organizations and charities with money raised from our bake sales, votive candles, and other fundraising activities. We serve funeral luncheons, host First Communion and Confirmation receptions, and assist with other Immaculate Heart fundraisers such as pancake breakfast, fish fry, and Wild Game Dinner. We collect items for the hygiene bags given to the homeless by Sharing and Caring Hands. We collect items for the midwife kits to be sent to Global Ministries in Africa and Christmas gifts for the Appalachian project. We lead rosaries at Whispering Pines in Pine River and send cards of support to seminarians, those ailing in our parish, and sympathy cards to families of deceased members.
We are a very busy organization! Check out the links below for more information. Join us at our next monthly meeting on the second Thursday of the month at 9:15 am.
