Council of Catholic Women
The Blessed Sacrament Council of Catholic Women (BSCCW) was established to support the parish community, and empower and educate Catholic women in leadership, spirituality and service. Meetings offer an opportunity to enjoy fellowship, where friendships can grow and be strengthened while working on leadership, service and spirituality activities.
We serve to assist our pastor in spiritual and material undertakings and to be of service to our parish and community through charitable works and fund-raising activities. The Council sponsors a seminarian, participates in the World Day of Prayer, and is a member of the People of Faith, an organization of women and men from local Christian churches. Besides supporting our community, we also support our mission church in Uganda and the JMJ Pregnancy Center. Through our Handmaidens’ circle we provide handmade clothing, blankets, prayer shawls, and various other items as needed to Lake Hills School, Head Start, JMJ and other organizations.
As an organization, the BSCCW collaborates with The Orlando Diocese CCW, Florida CCW, Northern Deanery CCW, National CCW, and Catholic Charities through conferences, conventions, state programs, and leadership workshops.
General membership meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, September through May, at 11 am in the social hall. We also have an Evening Circle which meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Adult Ministry Building. All Catholic women are invited to join.
