Our Lady of Fatima Council of Catholic Women (CCW)
The Council of Catholic Women acts through its members to support, empower, and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership, and service. The CCW responds with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society.
The CCW board meetings are held September through May after the 9 am mass on the first Thursday of the month in the Marian Room. Please check the bulletins for special meetings, luncheons, announcements and events.
Our Lady of Fatima CCW is composed of smaller groups (circles) that take the lead on certain projects and needs of the parish and community. The CCW Circle groups are: St. Alphonsus, St. Bernadette Circle, St. John Bosco Circle, St. Joseph Circle, Mother Cabrini Circle, and Our Lady of Fatima/St. Anne Circle.
Holy Name Society
Holy Name society is Our Lady of Fatima Men’s group to compliment the work of the CCW. Holy Name meets informally on the second Sunday of the month after the 8:30 Mass. Holy Name serves the needs of our community and parish through projects such as:
- Food basket distribution for the needy at Thanksgiving and Christmas
- Supporting the work on the church grounds and assisting when necessary on maintenance projects
- Coordinating the Sunday morning coffee and donuts
- Assisting with funeral dinners, church picnic, and other parish events.
Holy Name is a service organization ready to perform the work requested by the Pastor.
Knights of Columbus
Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney. Today, the Knights of Columbus is an international organization of over 2 million Catholic men who lead, serve, protect and defend.
Local councils are the basic unit of the Knights that serve the needs of the Church and community. In Casper, there are two local councils: Council 1563 Monsignor Thomas F. O’Reilly Council which meets at St. Anthony Church and St. Patrick’s Council 9917 which meets at St. Patrick’s Church. Locally serving the Casper community, these councils support Diocesan Seminarians, the Priest Retirement Fund, Coats for Kids, St. Anthony School events, True Care, March for Life, Holy Cross Food Bank, Wyoming Rescue Mission, and many other parish needs and events.

Serving at Wyoming Rescue Mission
On the first Saturday of each month, volunteers from Our Lady of Fatima parish prepare and serve the evening meal at the Central Wyoming Rescue Mission. If not for the Mission, many individuals would not have a hot, nutritious meal. It takes five to six people, working from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.to serve between 60 and 100 residents and guests of the Mission. The volunteers work with the Mission staff to coordinate and plan for a balanced meal, which is prepared in the kitchen at the Mission.
Volunteers are expected to pass a Diocesan background check and Safe Environments training. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Randy Hall.
