NCCW convention draws nearly 850 to Milwaukee

Cheri Perkins Mantz reported in our Catholic Herald on the biennial General Assembly of the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW), held in Milwaukee. Much of the article was about NCCW recruiting.
Lawton [Carlotta Lawton from the Diocese of Joliet, Illinois] said some of the newer activities implemented in her diocese to attract younger members include golf outings, knitting groups, a fashion show and Christmas craft bazaar.

Nem members are then encouraged to start a program in their parishes.
"Bunco, knitting and golf outings were all started by younger members on their own because there was an interest," she said. "Women like to go out. We also find our bus trips draw a varied age group."

That's it for specifics on what NCCW does.

Update: There's more at the NCCW web site, such as the Spring 2006 issue of its Bulletin Board newsletter.
