All parish women 18 years and older are members of the St. Mary’s Parish Council of Catholic Women (PCCW).
Our goals consist of bringing together the women of our parish through religious educational and social activities and working with our pastor in spiritual and material undertaking for the welfare of the parish.
Our organization is affiliated with the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW), which consists of more than 4,000 Catholic women’s organizations throughout the United States. We belong to the La Crosse Deanery Council of Catholic Women that includes women from 13 additional parishes in our local geographical area and to the larger Diocesan wide Council of Catholic Women.

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, intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous and loving 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 creation, and compassion for all God's children. May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God, and may God's gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come. Amen.
