Women’s Club

All women of the parish are encouraged to become actively involved in the Women’s Club. Past activities include supporting Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cancer Home, providing gift bags for Homeless Women Veterans, and planning and hosting an evening of reflection during Advent. Our Prayer Blanket Ministry is an ongoing project that provides prayer blankets to anyone who is ill or grieving. This year’s projects also include a toy collection for NETWorks store, as well as providing families in need with Christmas gifts; collecting backpacks for foster children, gloves for homeless, and baby layette items.

Meetings are held each month, September through May, in the parish hall, with a social half hour at 6:30 and meeting beginning at 7:00 pm.  Meetings include food, drink, entertainment, prayer, opportunity to participate in a service project, and chance to socialize with other women of the parish.
