Society meets 1stWednesdays of the month in either the parish hall or member homes at 10:30. We say the rosary and then have our meeting then a potluck afterwards. Ongoing activities include Monthly food sales in the coffee corner & helping in the parish Gift shop/book store. As well as providing tours and pilgrimages for the parish to attend. We also decorate the church for all celebrations such as Easter, Christmas, Advent, and Pentecost and provide flowers & plants weekly for the church and Altar. We provide funds for Altar related items such as Chalices, linens, rugs, and provide for the needs of the sacristans & clergy.

  1. To promote, conduct, and coordinate spiritual activities with growth and fellowship among women of our parish and women friends of St Mary Parish.
  2. To promote and execute special works requested by our pastor.
  3. To encourage mutual respect & cooperation of all ministries in our Church of St Mary Parish.
