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.
Our monthly meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm in the Fr. Wolber Activity Center….
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.
Our meeting is Monday, December 2nd. Doors open at 6:45 pm with the meeting starting at 7:00 pm. This will be our appetizers and dessert Christmas Party. If you forgot what you signed up for, just pick one! More appetizers are needed since we will also have a cookie tasting and recipe exchange. If you would like, bring a few of your favorite Christmas cookies to share along with the recipe to share.
Gifts for Angel House and Livonia House are due. Bring them in a large gift bag with a few sheets of tissue paper. Kathy will add various small items and fluff the tissue paper. She will be joined with members of the Youth Group and Sodality members and deliver the gifts on Monday, December 16th.
For the Last couple of years we have been doing a Dollar Store gift exchange. This has turned out to be a lot of fun, so don’t forget your wrapped $1.00 gift. It should be a fun evening. Please join us for our Christmas party.
By now all reservations should have been turned in for the Advent Tea which is this coming Saturday, December 7th from noon until 3:00 pm
