Every woman, by virtue of being Catholic, is a member of the Sacred Heart CCW and of the Winona CCW, which is an extension of our parish organization. As a member of the CCW, we ask that you would attend the quarterly meetings to take part in the church and social concerns of our organization.
The Sacred Heart CCW strives to uphold the mission of the National CCW in providing leadership and coordination of activities of our parish, working together as children of God, and sharing concerns which reflect current issues of the church and society. We hold quarterly meetings and offer fellowship and opportunities to broaden your faith through activities and presentations.
The Sacred Heart CCW is comprised of three guilds. Each guild consists of our church members, who are randomly assigned to a guild. The guilds’ purpose is to assist in implementing the activities of our church. Each guild is led by two volunteers who serve a two year term as Guild Chairs. The guild chairs initiate phone calls to seek food for funerals, remind parishioners of upcoming activities and recruit help for activities. Anyone interested in taking on the position of a guild chair can contact the Sacred Heart CCW President or a guild chair.
All meetings are held in the Sacred Heart Church hall, unless otherwise stated. Reminders are posted in the weekly church bulletin, prior to the meeting. Meetings will begin at 7:00 p.m. and are generally kept to 1 hour in length. The meeting consists of an opening prayer, reports, correspondence, commission reports, unfinished business and new business. There is time for fellowship before and after the meetings.
