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?

PARISH SUPPORT 
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.

FELLOWSHIP:  
 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.

OUTREACH:   
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??? 

 SPIRITUAL:        
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
