Saint Mary’s Guild
 

2016-2017 Co-Presidents: Mary Anne Eagan,  Maria Davis

We encourage all women parishioners to join the Guild.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to make great friends and be an active member in Saint Mary’s parish community. Volunteer in any area or event that interests you.   

Check us out !The women of Saint Mary’s Guild raised the money to build our church.  Over the years. we have purchased for Saint Mary’s the marble altar, the hanging crucifix and recently, the total refurbishment of our bell.

Founded in 1924, the Guild follows three objectives: 

To Promote Friendship among its Members-

Working together on projects, like Poinsettia deliveries to shut-ins, helping with parish mailings, sending cards to the sick and masses for our deceased, providing interesting programs after our business meetings, basket making for our Craft Fair, donating “Children Matter” bags for women abuse shelters, hosting the Installation Dinner and presentation of Scholarship Awards. 

To Enrich the Spiritual Lives of its Members-

We host yearly a mass for deceased members followed by a communion dinner. During Lent, we hold a parish Evening of Recollection which includes mass, a sit down dinner and a guest speaker.  The Altar Society cleans and maintains the altar areas in church. Our Honor Guard acts as greeters and stands guard at funerals of Guild members. 

To Raise Money for Saint Mary’s Church-

Our biggest fundraiser is the Craft Fair, held on the first Saturday in December each year, including raffle baskets, used book sales and efforts for our scholarship funds.
