Parish Life » St. Celestine Women’s Club

Women empowered by strength, love,
and faith for God and each other

The Saint Celestine Women's Club (SCWC), is an energetic organization for Saint Celestine women and friends, ages 18 and older, offering social, spiritual and service opportunities.

Saint Celestine women come together through many activities, small and large, that provide rewarding experiences.

As women of all ages, we grow collectively in friendship and laughter as we go forward in serving others with our many gifts and talents. Hand-in-hand, we strengthen and expand our spirituality and sense of community. So join us, and give yourself the gift of friendship with others and your faith.

It is our mission to support each other as Catholic women and to develop spiritually and socially through service to others.


Why get involved in SCWC? ^ Back To Top

Spiritual...

Perhaps you are seeking ways to enrich your spiritual life and to share meaningful and enlightening experiences with other women. We will plan retreats, prayer opportunities and other activities of interest to fulfill this need. Give yourself the gift of personal spiritual growth.

Service...

Have you been looking for a way to “give back,” to help at church or in the larger community? We will have opportunities for you to reach out and help others that will align with your area of interest. Some activities may include raising funds for the Parish or sponsoring coat drives, rose sales or other ways to help those in need.
Give yourself the gift of giving hope and joy to others.

Social...

Are you looking for a night out with some friends or ways of making some new ones? SCWC will provide social events giving you opportunities to relax and enjoy the company of other women. A few fun ideas may include movie night, wine tasting, or luncheons and theater.
So, go ahead give yourself the gift of relaxation and laughter; you deserve it.

The SCWC Organization ^ Back To Top

St. Celestine Women’s Club will elect officers every year, and the Board will hold monthly planning meetings to discuss spiritual, service, and social opportunities. The SCWC will meet on a monthly basis.

As a woman of our parish, you are very welcome to attend all of our events. To offset any minimal cost of guest speakers, publications/PR, social events, etc., we ask that all those joining SCWC contribute an annual dues of $20.00. You will receive minutes of the meetings and all information pertaining to activities and items of interest.
