Womens Guild

 

St. Joseph’s Women’s Guild has always been an amazing group of ladies who show the pride they take in our parish by their continual commitment of their time, talent, and treasure.

 

Hoping to continue this tradition during the 2015 – 2016  season, we are busy finalizing our calendar of programs for this year. If you would like to meet some of the nicest women around we ask you to come and join us at our monthly meetings. We begin by attending Mass offered for our intentions and then gather in the Parish Center to enjoy our program for the evening and experience delicious refreshments prepared for us by our Refreshments Committee.  We are a busy group, however, you are invited to either just attend our meetings and programs, OR, participate in any of the parish or outreach ministries that interest you!

 

Our members come together to:

 

  • Create our CRAFTFEST fundraiser, in November.

  • Feed the needy at the Soup Kitchen in Allentown.

  • Maintain our altars and decorate our church.

  • Serve as Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers at weekend and daily Masses.

  • Support our Clergy & religious Sisters.

  • Supply and maintain the clothing shed on the lower parking lot.

  • Volunteer time at the Festival

  • Enjoy bus trips to NYC in December and to the casinos, shrines, & plays year round.

  • Etc.,etc., etc…….

 

Through our efforts this past year, our annual disbursements totaled $16,000 to support our parish & outreach ministries.
