MCWC events are planned each year to help us put our faith into action. We meet most months of the school year for some nourishment and a program. These gatherings are the time to nurture relationships with long-standing friends and build new ones with women we're meeting for the first time. All events are open to guests, and all require advance registration. (To register, click the link in the Events tab on the navigation bar above.) See below for a description of each month's focus, and click on the boxes for more detailed information on that month's program.
** While we operate under the Covid-19 restrictions, our concern is for the safety and health of all our members and guests. Thus, our present goal is to create valuable content to deliver virtually. These challenging times require that we not only think "outside the box" but that we throw that box away and find the best way to achieve our goals! We appreciate so much your support and patience as we navigate this new normal together, and look forward to your comments and suggestions in the Members Messages!

- March - Honoring our Religious (and St. Patrick!) we offer rosary, mass said by the Bishop when available, luncheon and a speaker, often with a focus on an aspect of our justice system or civic responsibilities. This luncheon we invite the pastors, priests, and staff from our parishes to enjoy a lunch on us to thank them for their dedicated service.

Also at this luncheon we recognize all new members from the year, and enjoy an entertaining and engaging speaker.
