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.


NEWS

If you haven’t already seen, the dedication of the new Chapel is this Monday, the same night as our RAISE THE STEAKS fund raiser that gives the Sodality 15%- 20% of each lunch or dinner when you present the coupon in the paper. Logan’s has agreed to honor the coupon for both lunch and dinner all day on this Monday.

The Sodality members will be gathering for lunch at 11:30am this Monday. If you haven’t signed up, call: Joanne so she can reserve a large enough table. If you were planning on dinner, you could have your spouse join you for an early dinner and still make the dedication and Mass that night. This is open to all parishioners and their family and friends. Just remember to bring a coupon for each check. They can be copied from the bulletin. Please pass the word and support the Sodality.


See you in Church
