The Ladies’ Guild Mission is to support and enrich the life of our St. Mark parish family through fellowship, outreach and spiritual activities.
Ladies’ Guild in Action
What we have done; What we are doing.
We combine business, social and spiritual – with monthly reflections, social events, Mary tributes and by hosting community and inspirational speakers.
We have sponsored retreats and hold an annual communion breakfast.
Parish Support Includes
Fellowships. FunFest. Receptions for clergy. Bereavement. Lenten soup. Requests from SVdP, Religious Ed and Youth Ministry. Funding Mary and Joseph devotional areas. Book of Gospels. Altar candelabra and many other specific parish needs.
Our Martha Ministry support for members. Sponsoring Sandwiches on Sunday. Gift baskets. School supplies. Christmas presents. Rosary makers. Supplies shoebox project for abused women. Outreach bags for the homeless and much more for those in need.
You name it, we’ve done it. From gift fairs to flea markets to fashion shows. From bake sales to parish cookbooks to basket raffles. Even a “cruise” on the St. Mark Flanagan.
CAN YOU HELP US DO MORE?
Who Are We?
The Ladies’ Guild was organized in 1967, shortly after the parish was formed, and is still today an integral part of the St. Mark community.
Through the Guild, the most amazing ladies of this parish share generously of their time, talent and treasure.
Our mission statement says it all – and with St. Martha as our inspiration – the efforts of the Guild from those first members until our group today, more than exemplifies our ideals.
Women to love well and live in unity
Women to go deeper and soar higher
Women to answer God’s call in their lives
What Do We Do?
SIMPLY, WE DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE!!
Our mission never changes, but our focus shifts with parish and community needs.
We are only limited by the numbers in our ranks and the enthusiasm of our members. New ideas are always welcome.
We traditionally meet from September through May on the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm.
All are welcome to drop in for some coffee and a snack – just to see what we are all about.
Even if you can’t come to meetings, there are always ways to help out with specific requests or events.
Our members range from very active, to those who help when they can and those who are only able to offer support through dues and prayers.
ALL ARE EQUALLY VALUED
