Life Cycle of Your Group
Ensuring our Future
By Mary Matheus, LTD Consultant
100 years in existence, what a milestone! So how will you celebrate this milestone? Are you planning a birthday party, or a celebration including Mass, maybe a history lesson of NCCW, or sharing a meal? These are all wonderful ways to celebrate this 100th birthday.
But let’s take it a step further….what will you do to assure that your CCW flourishes in the months and years to come? Will you provide training for your members? Offer a morning or day of training incorporating information on how to recruit, retain and mentor membership. You could include icebreakers on how to get to know your members, offer tips on how to conduct a productive meeting or perhaps a session on those Robert’s Rules that most seem to want to ignore. Training offers opportunities to be together and deepen relationships with one another. Will you provide information for new members and pair them with a seasoned member to learn about your Council of Catholic Women? This creates relationships among your members. Will you communicate with your Spiritual Advisor to inform and also ask for advice? Asking for guidance can change relationships because your Spiritual Advisor will feel included and valued. Will you provide your members with opportunities to serve both your parish and community? This builds friendships and relationships among members and beyond. Will you provide opportunities for members to pray, to deepen their spiritual lives and their relationship with the Lord? Do you notice anything about the above action items? They are opportunities to deepen and strengthen relationships—relationships with our members, our Spiritual Advisors and most importantly with our Lord. These relationships will ensure growth and another celebration for our 200th birthday!
