The National Council of Catholic Women acts through its members to support, empower, and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership, and service. NCCW programs respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society in the modern world.

Founded in 1920 by the U.S. Catholic bishops to provide all Catholic women a common voice and an instrument of unified action

The NCCW mourns the death of George Floyd  and the long list of victims that have gone before him.  Racism takes many forms and can happen in many places. It includes prejudice, discrimination or hatred directed at someone because of their color, ethnicity or national origin.

We ask our members to read  the USCCB pastoral letter on racism "Open Wide Our Hearts: the Enduring Call to Love," (please click here) and engage each other in dialogue and reflection during this time of unrest and sadness.
