The Ascension Council of Catholic Women (ACCW) is affiliated with the Palm Beach Diocesan Council of Catholic Women and the National Council of Catholic Women. Our parish group is involved in many aspects of life for women and families. As an organization, we work diligently to:

  • support our parish and all of its other ministries and organizations,
  • hold fundraisers to finance scholarships, charities, our operational expenses and leadership training,
  • invite interesting and informative guest speakers to our meetings,
  • seek to be inclusive in all that we do.
  • We are proud of our diverse membership of professional women, married and single women, mothers and grandmothers. We invite all women of Ascension to join us!
