The Sacred Heart Council of Catholic Women (SHCCW) is an affiliate of the National Council of Catholic Women, which consists of more than 3,000 affiliated Catholic women’s organizations in parishes and dioceses throughout the United States. The SHCCW, through its members, support, empower, and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership, and service as well as assist the church in the spiritual, charitable, social, civic, and educational work required to meet the needs of our community.
Throughout the year, the SHCCW hold various fundraisers to provide contributions to our Sacred Heart parish, the local community, the Diocese of St. Petersburg, and national/international relief efforts. Some of the charitable works and ministries include:
- Apostleship of the Sea Ministry
- “The Bridges” Assisted Living Home
- Lenten Giving Tree
- Baby Layette Drive
All women of the parish are welcome to join and bring their gifts and talents to supporting Catholic Women in their faith and lives.
The SHCCW meets every month from September through May on the first/second Thursday at 7:00 pm or first/second Saturday in the morning. Meeting dates and times are announced to members accordingly.
