Ste. Anne's CCW

Ste. Anne's Council of Catholic Women (CCW) originated as the Society of Ste. Anne here in Little Canada in 1904 and it remains an active part of a history rich with devotion. Its members come from all walks of life, each bringing a valuable perspective on women in today's world. Ste. Anne's members seek to live their faith and grow spiritually while contributing to the family, parish, community and the larger family of the world. The council is affiliated with the Council of Catholic Women on local and national levels and with the Arch-confraternity of Ste. Anne de Beaupré, Quebec. Membership is open to all women of the parish.

Ste. Anne's Mission Statement
We come in the name of Jesus Christ to live more fully the life of faith by serving this parish community with Ste. Anne our patron and guide for the good of the family and to carry the love of Christ into the world.

  • The special protection of Ste. Anne over the homes of its members.

  • A more perfect Christian formation, particularly as wife, mother and as apostle.

  • The possibility of performing a more efficacious apostolate in the home and in the parish.

  • The benefit of abundant reciprocal prayers: both during life and after death.

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel - Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women
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 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.
