Message from the Province Director


  The Florida Council of Catholic Women Board (FCCW) is comprised of women serving the Catholic Church in Florida from the seven arch/dioceses that make up the Province of Miami.  It is my honor to serve as the FCCW President/Province Director for 2019-2021 from the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee that includes the 18 counties of northwest Florida. I invite you to look at the FCCW roster under contacts to see the names of the women serving with me as well as the diocesan spiritual advisors.
The theme for my two years is “Love God and Love Your Neighbor”, a distillation of the two great commandments. This is what we, as women, do: pray and work in the Lord’s vineyards  The committees will be working on projects of interest and news will be posted so continue to come back to peruse the listings.
Take time to review the two videos attached: a short video shown at the 2019 National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) Convention and one developed by the Diocese of St. Petersburg. They show our enthusiasm for the works of Council.
FCCW celebrated 50 Years of Service in 2018, described in the FCCW History Book available for purchase on the form listed. All proceeds go towards our annual statewide project, Hugs for the Homeless, benefitting organizations that serve the homeless in our state.
For more information about the FCCW or NCCW, you may contact me at

Our Lady of Good Counsel, pray for us.

Yours in service,

Sheila S. Hopkins
FCCW President/Province Director
