History of our Deanery website:  

East(ern) DuPage Deanery’s website went online in February, 2009; as of 2/28/2015, total visitors were 15, 691.  By 1/1/2015, the site had migrated to this page, but unfortunately, visitor statistics are not usually available.   
















WELCOME to East DuPage-South DuPage Council of Catholic Women's web page!

We hope you will find here items of use and interest both personally and as as a member of the Council of Catholic Women (CCW). All women in parishes with a Council of Catholic Women (CCW) are members of CCW. In addition to the information and resources on the Joliet Diocesan CCW's website and its mailings to members, visitors and guests, East-South DuPage Deanery publishes and distributes a bi-monthly newsletter, the Significa, which contains news for our Deanery CCW, information on past and upcoming events, and articles by our board with ideas and resources for CCW women and Councils.  For example, the first issue of each 2-year term introduces the new board, the issue after a diocesan or national convention summarizes the sessions for those unable to attend in person, and the last issue of each year (May) is written by each Parish council, and consists of reports from each on their activities of the year.  If you do not receive our newsletter, and would like to, please contact the editor, Pam Sifuentes, at geopamsifu@comcast.net  Below, we have links to this year's events, newsletters and some of our archives. Please contact the web page editor at ccw.webmanager@gmail.com if you have questions, concerns, or ideas for improving this page.

DEANERY EVENTS  Our first support and educational resource to you, the parish CCW officers and members is through two (or more) meetings a year where you can meet your peers from neighboring parishes in a network of widening awareness, to exchange ideas, share successful programs and services, etc., and often learn new ideas from a speaker or panel.  Then of course, is the publication and distribution of the 6 annual issues of our deanery newsletter, the Significa, and the maintenance of this website.  Our Archives give anyone interested some of our history and background.  Below you'll find links to our recent events, projects, newsletters, and archives.
