A Message
from the President


My Dear Sisters in Christ,

Building and growing in faith!  Looking back over the past year these words have inspired me and touched my heart.  The South Carolina Council of Catholic Women has truly grown in who we have touched and who we are as an organization.  Our “One Voice” has gotten stronger as we have joined together to Empower, Educate, and Support women in South Carolina.  We have learned a tremendous amount from both our sisters in the National Council of Catholic Women and the Province of Atlanta.  SCCCW celebrated its 85th Anniversary March 20-22, 2014 with wonderful speakers and shared friendships.  Join the fun by attending the SCCCW 86th Convention at the Marina Inn at the Grande Dunes March 11-13, 2016 in Myrtle Beach, SC. 

In the coming months, SCCCW will concentrate on growing from 5 to 7 Deaneries and will communicate with even more catholic women in the Diocese of Charleston.  SCCCW will continue to spread the news in our parishes on the “We Are Called To Witness!” manual on evangelization and “Women Healing the Wounds” program from the National Council of Catholic Women.  SCCCW will continue to be informed on legislative issues affecting our lives and active in “Catholics for Freedom of Religion”, among several other issues.

In 2002, I joined SCCCW right after moving to South Carolina.  SCCCW gave me an avenue to meet new friends, build my faith, and make a difference in the community.  It has been one of the most powerful things I have done in my life!  Whether you are looking for new friends or just interested in a catholic women’s organization that compliments your interests, I invite you to learn more about what SCCCW has to offer.  You will not be disappointed!  Contact me at any time through the email provided below.  I am your servant and so proud to be affiliated with an organization of women with like minds and goals!  

If you would like to be part of the communications that are sent out periodically, please send an email to scccw.correspondence@gmail.com. SCCCW does not sell email addresses nor use them for any other purpose than spreading the news of what the organization is doing.

Spirituality, Leadership, Service
Yes, the South Carolina Council of Catholic Women is truly alive
and committed to being the “Light of the Lord!”


Peace, Blessings and Love to you always,
Marlene Grover, President
South Carolina Council of Catholic Women
