Holy Spirit Women's Guild

"Making a Difference" Through Mary, Our Mother, Our Model

 

The Women’s Guild of Holy Spirit Parish promotes devotion to the Blessed Mother through prayer and service.  Canonically established December 18, 1962, the group was originally called The Rosary Altar Society. In August of 1966 the group adopted its current name.  From its inception, the membership indicated interest not only in spiritual matters, but also in social welfare, education, health care, and senior citizens.  Today, the role of the Guild includes service to Birthright, Malta House, Dress for Success, the Haitian-American Religious Community of Stamford, to name a few.  The Guild also has taken on grounds beautification of church property and continues to maintain the altars. All our works are done with joy and dedication.

The Women’s Guild also:
• Encourages deepened spirituality, with guest speakers and off-site retreats
• Assists the pastor whenever needed
• Sponsors various fundraisers for the church and community organizations
• Encourages socialization with all women throughout the parish with various events such as our Biannual Tea, Holiday Luncheon, Jewelry parties, Craft events and Year-end Mass & Dinner.
• Fosters community among the parish through sponsorship of the Advent Wreath Dinner and Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Membership in the Women’s Guild is open to all women of the parish 18 and older.  Annual dues are $20. Look for a blue envelope in your envelope mailer or sign up with our online form.

We would love to meet you. Come to a meeting and then decide if you'd like to join!
