PORT ST. LUCIE  |  It was a day of camaraderie and training Oct. 2, 2021, at the Palm Beach Diocesan Council of Catholic Women’s 2021 Leadership Conference. 

It was also a day to “bake a spiritual birthday cake” celebrating the National Council of Catholic Women’s 101st anniversary. Women from CCW-affiliated parishes all over the diocese attended the conference. The parish hall at Holy Family in Port St. Lucie was filled with council women eager to learn.

During the Palm Beach Diocesan Council of Catholic Women's training conference, women learned leadership skills to bring back to their parish CCW groups.
