All women of the Blessed Sacrament Parish are invited to join the Council of Catholic Women.  The Council of Catholic Women is an organization founded in 1920 at the request of the U.S. Bishops. They recognized the women of the Church to be active, motivated, and influential in a broad range of ecclesial and social issues. The Bishops wanted to give women a unified voice and from with which to serve Christ through His Church. Historically, they have responded to the needs of the times, of the poor, of the elderly, and of the marginalized through the spiritual and corporeal works of mercy. They support the work of our Priests and Bishops.
