WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU “CHECK US OUT”
The Ladies’ Guild Mission is to support and enrich the life of our St. Mark parish family through fellowship, outreach and spiritual activities.
What does that mean in action?
Over the years the Guild has supplied many of the beautiful items in the church and surrounding grounds.
We have helped the Religious Ed and Youth Ministry programs whenever asked.
And, we are proud that in all its endeavors, St. Mark parish knows it can always count on the Ladies’ Guild.
Our members are a group of amazing ladies and we welcome any woman of the parish to join us.
More than ever, our voices are needed.
Individuals can do a lot, but there is great power in the strength of a group.
Join us at meetings and get to know other awesome women of the parish
We meet the first Wednesday of the month from September through May at 7pm in the Fr. Flanagan Hall
Not all members can make the meetings, but when they can, all are willing to help as needed.

Volunteer to help with events, outreach and fundraising
Over the years we have increased our outreach efforts and found the ultimate reward in knowing that in some way, no matter how small, we have made a difference.
Our Martha Ministry program supports members of our own Guild in times of need
In addition our outreach efforts have included drives – for socks, sweats, toiletries, school supplies, etc. and other programs to support a variety of worthwhile causes and organizations, including:
Catholic Worker House, Samaritan House, SamaritalnHouse Safe Harbor, St. Vincent dePaul, the Veterans Administration Homeless Project, Epiphany Center, SVdP Catherine Center and Shelters for Abused Women – to name a few.
How much more could we do with your help???
We draw our strength from our faith and strive to include readings and programs throughout the year to increase our love, compassion and understanding.
As we start a new Guild year, through the Lord’s blessings and our inner strength, may we:
ENCOURAGE each other through praise and recognition
Extend a HELPING HAND to one another
VOLUNTEER time in the spirit of charity
Be not afraid to accept new positions of RESPONSIBILITY
UNDERSTAND that there are many different ways to accomplish a job
BE OPEN MINDED to other’s suggestions
Try to BEFRIEND the quiet and shy
Be SENSITIVE to those who struggle
Share KIND WORDS to those who try
Do not feed on negative gossip
Quietly take grievances to those in charge
WORK HARD for a common goal
Give each other RECOGNITION in all areas of endeavor
Obtain the strength to LAUGH when all else fails
SHARE OUR PRAYERS FOR THE GOOD OF ALL Aurora Musante
SOME NEWS FROM THE GUILD GAZETTE-
May 4, 2019
On MAY 1 we held our final meeting (and party) of the GUILD YEAR.
Father Angel installed the new officers for their new 2 year term, we had a special devotion to our Blessed Mother in honor of our mothers and and then celebrated the closing with a May Day party.
The pot luck did not disappoint and the White Wine Sangria drink of the day was a huge hit.
Truly a fitting way to thank all the very hard working ladies of the Guild who made our fellowship, fundraising, spiritual and outreach efforts so successful these past months.
SEPTEMBER 4, 2019 WILL BE OUR NEXT GUILD KICKOFF MEETING and MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL:
Would love to have all ladies of the parish join us after the summer break when we start a new year.
Look for more details during the summer.
