About Us

Altar Society

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

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