After much prayer and discernment, the National Council of Catholic Women, has made an informed decision to postpone our  Centennial Convention 2020 until  August 25 - 28, 2021, when we are able to celebrate together safely.  Our concern for your health and wellbeing as well as that of our partners was the primary reason for this decision. 

If you have already registered for the 2020 Convention, an NCCW staff member will be calling you in the next few weeks to discuss your refund. 

We are ever so grateful for your continued support and we look forward to celebrating together in 2021!!!


All room reservations for the NCCW Convention at the Gateway Marriott Hotel for August 2020 have been cancelled to avoid any penalties.  If you have any questions please contact Patricia Voorhes, President elect at
