St. Joseph Council of Catholic Women

The St. Joseph Council of Catholic Women acts through its membership to support, empower, and educate all the women of St. Joseph Parish in spirituality, leadership, and service.  The group is affiliated with the National Council of Catholic Women.  Programs respond to support the ability to know, love, and serve God;  to share the good news of Jesus Christ; to be of support to our St. Joseph, Bluffton parish;  and to serve all in need in our parish, our community and throughout our world.

Our meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, September through May at 7:00P.M. in the church basement unless announced otherwise.

Our Patroness of the St. Joseph Council of Catholic Women is Our Lady of Good Counsel, the Mother of God.

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

God of heavenly wisdom, you have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus, to be our guide and counselor.  Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.

O Mother of Good Counsel, patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous and loving leaders of the Church.  Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son.  May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God’s creation, and compassion for all God’s children.  May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come. Amen.

Our officers are: President, TBA; Vice-President, Sandy Smythe; Secretary, Christine Zadylak; Treasurer, Michelle Paxton
