Council Events

The Grand Island Diocese Council of Catholic Women holds a number of events each year or every other year.  See our event calendar for specific dates.  Below, read descriptions of these events.


In the Spring each year, we gather with all four deaneries to hear from relevant speakers, celebrate Mass, and enjoy fellowship.

Deanery meetings

Our four deaneries – Alliance, North Platte, Kearney, and Grand Island – meet individually to plan the events of their area and fulfill their commission work.  Check our calendar or with your deanery for this schedule.

Bi-Annual Meeting

Every other year, we gather in the Fall with all deaneries…

Catholics At the Capitol

Each Spring, all Nebraska Catholics are invited to look at our state’s government, hear from our governor, and meet with State Senators on our legislative priorities. We learn how to help pass laws protecting life, faith, family, and more. We are equipped with the tools to confidently advocate for our issues year-round.

Contribution Sundays

Every Sunday October through April is an opportunity to collect seminary funds to support those men preparing to be priests in our diocese.  Look for information about this or share information at your parish!

Board Meetings

Board meetings are held quarterly and rotate throughout the diocese.
