The Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women is an organization for all women in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. We serve as the link between the Archbishop and the women of the Archdiocese “to support, empower, and educate Catholic women in spirituality, leadership, and service. The ACCW responds with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society.”
In this day and age it is difficult to remain faithful to our church and family and difficult to raise children, let alone raise them as faithful Catholics. The ACCW with its affiliates aims to help women help each other in these tasks.
I look forward to meeting you at one of our events or perhaps at your parish or Archdiocesan event. If you wish to contact me, please feel free to do so. My contact information is on the “About Us” page. I would love to discuss with you any problems you are having with the women's group you are a part of or if you would like to start a group. I can help you whether it is a Young Mother's Group, Altar and Rosary, Daughters of Isabella, Women of Grace, Endow, or just a small bible study.
Yours in Christ,
Susan Draftz, President ACCWKCK
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.
The Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women of Kansas City Kansas is faithful to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church
