We are blessed to have a council at Saint Mary Catholic Church!
As an affiliate of the West Central Deanery Council, Pensacola-Tallahassee Diocesan Council, Florida Council and National Council of Catholic Women, we share the same mission statement,
“to act through its membership to support, empower and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, service and leadership through programs that respond with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society in the modern world.”
Our “council year” runs September through May; we come together on these First Fridays to worship at morning Mass, enjoy fellowship, a program and do a little business.
Information can be found by calling the parish office, (850) 243-3742
