Norwich Diocesan Council of Catholic Women Support Catholic Charities


MIDDLETOWN – Judith K. Pappagallo, President of the Norwich Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, and members of the Council (pictured) gathered at St. Mary Church in Portland for a luncheon and to present the staff of Catholic Charities with items collected throughout the Diocese for their Layette Program.

Every year, through the Council’s Layette Program, the women of the council actively collect baby clothes, diapers, baby wipes, blankets, and formula.  These items are presented to Catholic Charities at a luncheon.  Edward J. Tessman, Executive Director of Catholic Charities was joined by two staff members: Anissa Mrowka, Pregnancy Educator and Miriam Rodriguez, Willimantic Site Supervisor.

Ed was humbled by what the members of the Council had collected through their parishes, which had been stacked and covered six, eight foot tables.  Ed commented that this was his second layette and that the Council exceeded expectations.  Of the many items collected, the women of St. Andrew in Colchester donated 22 handmade quilts.  Anissa Mrowka commented that the young mothers adore the quilts and that they are such a favorite with her clients.  Ed stated that, “These gifts are life changing for some and provide so many with a new sense of being and belonging to a community.  A community of unselfish people who truly care about others.  It is through the continued support of the Council and their many efforts that Catholic Charities is able to continue to Provide Help and Create Hope for those in need."

The Norwich Diocesan Council of Catholic Women have been supporting women in need since 1921.
