The Guild provides services to the Church, such as purchasing flowers for the altar, candles, altar clothes, altar cleaning and care. In November of 2003, the Guild made possible the purchase of a brand new beautiful brass advent wreath and holder. It was used for the first time on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2003. Also the refurbishing of candle holders and oriental rugs. Also provided are Christmas trees and decorations for the church. We take great pleasure in hosting various activities such as the Confirmation Reception, the reception for the Diocesan Wedding Anniversary Mass, covered dish dinner and other special projects.
In return members receive spiritual benefits. We are remembered at the fourth weekend Mass every month. Deceased members are entitled to a special Mass. Social rewards fall into place as you work side by side and begin to know and love your fellow parishioners while friendships grow over your lifetime.
The Guild sponsors an annual fund-raiser, which makes all of the benefits to the church listed above financially possible.
Our goal this year is to increase the active members, those who come to the meetings and help make decisions which will benefit our church. We also would like to see more young people (18 years and over) become active members.
