Council of Catholic Women (CCW)


CCW has been uniting the women of St. Mark’s Parish in religious, educational and social activities since 1970. Their “Serving Hands” support our parish community by providing services for Altar Care, Funeral Dinners, Coffee Hours (one Sunday each month), Charitable Fund Raisers, Annual Rummage Sale, Sewing Circle (Provides altar linens) and a Children’s Play Group. We are affiliated with the Idaho Council of Catholic Women and the National Council of Catholic Women.

We meet once a month, September thru May, for social, spiritual and educational purposes.
