Altar Society

The organization was established in 1922.  We welcome Catholic women for an annual membership of just $10. Monthly meetings cost $8.50 and includes a catered lunch followed by a speaker or entertainment and a short business meeting. We ask working women who are unable to attend meetings regularly to join as a supporting member. Your $10 is used for many parish functions.

Our stewardship opportunities: 

  • Prepare & serve funeral lunches (corporal work of Mercy)

  • Clean church twice a month on Wednesday

  • Craft club – cut, stitch, embroider, tie quilts, and conversation

  • Stephens Ministry – make and/or serve casseroles and desserts

  • Honor guard prays the rosary before the funeral of Altar Society members and escorts the casket out of the church.

  • Festival – bake sale, craft goods sales, and quilt raffle

We support the Gaelic Gala, tuition assistance for student of Holy Cross School, St. Vincent DePaul Society, Bethlehem House and seminarians. 

Come and enjoy a meeting as a guest. Meet and make friends.
