Our monthly meetings are on the first Monday of each month at 6:30pm in the Fr. Wolber Activity Center….

The object of this organization shall be to promote the Spiritual sanctification of each member, to unite the women of the Parish in the spirit of friendship and cooperation, to care for the Altar, to serve the Parish community through numerous committees and functions and to provide financial assistance as needed for their equipment and maintenance.

The Women’s Sodality was chartered in 1959 and was originally called the Rosary Altar Sodality. It has been a vehicle for strengthening our community spirit within and outside the Parish Some activities over the years include: Christmas Bazaars; Arts and Craft Shows; Bake Sales; Raffles; Fashion Shows; Sacramental Receptions; special breakfasts; and installation dinners. The St. Maurice Women’s Guild has been an active organization for many years – aimed at organizing and performing many of the most important parish functions like the annual picnics, bake sales and special receptions. Both womens’ organizations have now come together to form a new, stronger maternal organization that will serve our parish family for years to come.

Responsibilities include: Altar care and cleaning; maintaining servers robes and Altar linens; decorating sanctuary; providing Baptismal stoles; hosting special receptions; maintaining kitchen and equipment; assisting Our Lady of Providence and other local nursing homes; and maintaining/decorating the Blessed Mother Shrine.

We will have a Valentine show and tell. So bring in any special valentine cards you have received over the years and stories of special celebrations of that special day. It’s always fun to hear special stories either heart warming, funny or hopefully not disappointing. We will also have a special Valentine surprise. Come to the meeting to find out what it is!

To all members who are on the Altar Cleaning Committee, we have been asked to dust the Chapel and change the holy water when we clean the Church.

Thank you for your extra effort.

Remember to say an extra prayer for your fellow Sodality members.


See you in Church
