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 Monday of each month at 6:30pm 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 December meeting is Monday the 7th. This is our Christmas pot luck. Bring a dish to pass. We will also have our famous dollar store gift exchange. What unique and clever way will these gifts be passed around this year?
The gift giving season is fast approaching and we don’t want to forget the residents of Angel House and Livonia Opportunity House. If you took a tag remember to bring the tag and the gift to this meeting. Kathy requested a large gift bag and unfluffed tissue paper since she adds smaller items to the larger gift that you purchased. If you forgot, some of the items she needs are: vinyl records 33 1/3 or 45 rpm, 12 Kleenex, 11 deodorants, 4 soap bottles, 2 round glass ornaments, 3 pr. Men’s socks, 11 pens. She might have most of these items by now but as of this writing this was the list I was given. You can always call her (Kathy Damphousse) to see if these items are still needed.
Remember to say an extra prayer for your fellow Sodality members.
See you in Church
