Who We Are

Although our differences can be clearly seen, there is a common thread that links us all together. In addition to sharing our faith, we provide friendship, comfort, kindness, support and often times help to members and others who may be in need.

We invite all the women in our community to become part of our organization.  We generally meet in small groups (guilds) monthly in the morning, afternoon or evening.  Several times a year we have events for which all groups gather together.  These can be spiritual or social.  Membership is open to all women and new members are welcome to join at any time. 

Monthly Guild Meetings
  • Guild 1 (St. Martha) meets 9:30 AM on the first Monday
  • Guild 3 (St. Monica) meets 1:00 PM on the first Thursday
  • Guild 4 (St. Theresa) meets 7:00 PM on the second Tuesday
  • Guild 5 (St. Anne) meets 7:00 PM on the second Wednesday
