The mission of the Council of Catholic Women is to support, empower, and educate all women in spirituality, leadership, and service according to Catholic teachings.

Most Holy Redeemer Council of Catholic Women is a member of the North Jax Deanery , an affiliation member of the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women (DCCW-St. Augustine), member of the Florida Council of Catholic Women (FCCW), and the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW).

As you can see, by joining CCW at your parish level, you become a part of a much bigger/stronger “voice”.  There is presence, impact, and strength with numbers.  Your participation at the affiliation level is vital to the strength, impact, of the organization all the way up the ladder.
