Lincoln Diocesan Council of Catholic Women (LDCCW)
The LDCCW is the Lincoln Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, an organization of all Catholic women in the Diocese of Lincoln. The LDCCW enriches the lives of Catholic women by pursuing projects designed to further spiritual and family life in all parishes and communities in southern Nebraska. Organized in 1932, the LDCCW has undertaken dozens of projects which fulfill the corporal and spiritual works of mercy as outlined by the Church. More than 22,000 women undertake to fulfill the Gospel mandate by becoming involved in their parishes and towns in humanitarian, religious, pastoral and educational endeavors. The work of the LDCCW directly effects not only the local parish and each family, but also impacts on the state and national legislative scene as well as on the needs of the missions and the poor around the world. The vision and scope of the LDCCW is at one and the same time local and global. The LDCCW is a member of the National Council of Catholic Women, NCCW.org.
