Women's Ministry

The Women’s Ministry was organized to serve as a spiritual, social, and cultural network of support and enrichment for all women of the parish. This is accomplished by sponsoring spiritual and social gatherings, acting as an open forum for women's concerns, inviting guest speakers on topics of interest, providing service to those in need, and acting as a support group for other areas of parish life. The Women’s Ministry meets the First Thursday of the month.

Months of the meetings will be determined and announced in the bulletin.

We have several committees which are comprised of volunteers. The Funeral Dinner Committee consists of women who prepare a dinner in the Parish Center for members of a deceased person’s family and friends to attend after the Mass and grave-side services. The Meal Chain Committee prepares meals once or twice a week for parish families who are experiencing difficulty generally as the result of one of the family members being hospitalized or temporarily incapacitated. The members of the Prayer Chain Committee pray for the special intentions of anyone who requests prayers for themselves, a family member, or a friend who is experiencing a time of difficulty.

The Women’s Ministry also co-sponsors the annual Turkey Dinner and Fish Dinner. We adopt a needy family during the Christmas season and provide food and gifts for them.

Profits from fund raisers are used to sponsor spiritual and social gatherings, purchase items for other church ministries, equipment and supplies for the church staff, and donate to other outside spiritual organizations.
