Council of Catholic Women


The Ely Council of Catholic Women strives to walk with our patroness Mary in love, service, and humility.

Every woman of St. Anthony's is invited to become an active member of the parish CCW. We meet once a month on the fourth Tuesday at 1:00 pm (we take the summer off); if you are unable to join or meetings are not your thing, we have many ministries you can be involved in and support! Our major fundraisers are the Fall and Spring Thrift sales; the proceeds from them allow us to support charities and organizations both locally and throughout the world. We also have a Christmas and Spring Luncheon, support Christmas gifts for families in Appalachia, provide cookies for Meals on Wheels, celebrate some holidays at the Boundary Waters Care Center, assist with the parish Mardi Gras party, provide delicious baked goods for our Lenten fish fries, and more! There is truly something for everyone. 

Our membership drive is each fall, but you can contact our co-Presidents Marilynn ([email protected] or (218) 365-6144) or Lorraine (218) 365-4589) with any questions or interests!
