A Message from our President
The Chicago Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women (ACCW) is an affiliate organization of the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW). Our organization has been a resource for all Catholic Women’s groups in the Archdiocese of Chicago since 1931.
The organization under the Archdiocese of Chicago, and with the help of our Cardinal, Bishops, Priests, and the different rings of council assist us in accomplishing our mission statement to educate and empower women in Spiritually, Leadership, and Service. We work together as a team, using our gifts, talents, and time to help others in need. The theme for the next two years is “Catholic Women Nurturing Faith, Diversity, and Service.” Women Nurturing is an example of how women care for their children and families. ACCW has grown over the years, and continues to strive for ways to make a difference in the world in which we live. We can work as a team and interact with our women’s clubs, and use this website as a resource for information on the organization, event dates, scholarship information, projects, trainings and more. The website is a useful tool in reaching all Catholic women in the Chicago Archdiocese as we share information from the organization, the vicariates, the deaneries and the parishes. It is a pleasure to be your President for 2012-2014. I look forward to working with all the ladies of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Thanks for all your hard work and service that has and will continue to make this organization shine as a bright light. Please feel free to contact the office any time at 312-534-8325/8330 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Let us be a nurturing spirit to one another in the next two years.”
Sheila R. Travillion, ACCW President
