THE SDCCW Celebrates NCCW’s 100th Birthday

“Happy 100th Birthday NCCW”

2020 spring bd

 

At the March 17, 2020, SDCCW Board Meeting in Hayward, Board members celebrated NCCW’s 100th Birthday! It was on March 4,1920, the organization was founded and having a Board Meeting during the month of March provided the perfect opportunity for a birthday celebration.

Just take a moment and envision the women in 1920 meeting for the first time to organize and plan their mission and strategy. Certainly, they were met with different obstacles and different issues, but they did have the support of the U.S. Catholic Bishops. Now step forward 100 years and voila, women in 2020 are still concerned with different obstacles and issues and still have the support of the U.S. Catholic Bishops. What a legacy those founding women have provided for us. While the NCCW has continued to change their focus over these past 100 years, they uphold and continue to live their Mission of Supporting, Empowering and Educating all Catholic women in Spirituality, Leadership and Service. This realization provides the best reason to celebrate this occasion at any level of Council: within your Parish Council of Catholic Women’s groups, at the Deanery and/or Diocesan levels. Plus, it also provides a great incentive for women to come and join the celebration at NCCW’s 100th Anniversary Convention in Washington D.C. August 26-29th, 2020.
