- Providing Catholic women with viable skills to enable them to communicate and collaborate in a unified voice on issues of
common interest and concern in union with the Catholic Church.

We are proud of the work we do and the support we provide within our parish and community! Just a few examples include:
- Helping organize our parish Divine Mercy Sunday activities

Funds raised during some of our events go to support maintenance of the church kitchen, purchasing of communion hosts and altar supplies, donating to Water for Life, maintaining non-structural needs for the rectory and church hall, and providing financial assistance to seminarians.
We pray that with the support from our entire parish and blessings of our patroness 'Our Lady of Good Counsel', we will be able to continue in our efforts to make a difference in our Faith, Family, and Fulfillment.

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, courageous, and living 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 creations, and compassion for all God’s children. May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God’s gift of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come. Amen.
