Our Lady of Lourdes Guild

Women of all ages are invited to join the Guild. Get involved in our church—meet and network with other women, share and support each other. Dues are low ($5 per year, $25 for lifetime!) — rewards are great! Meetings are 3rd Mondays, September through May. Events and activities are throughout the year. Come as often as you can; help whenever and wherever you are able!

The sweatshop ladies have been busy preparing for the annual bazaar. We NEED OLD JEWELRY, your ideas, Christmas decorations, especially quilted wall hangings, knitted and crocheted items. Please bring your donated items to the guild meeting, to the sweatshop on Mondays from 10-2, leave at the message center or rectory.

This year the bazaar will be held on the second weekend in November, not the first. The dates are Saturday, November 14th and Sunday, November 15th after the Masses. Please mark your calendars.

If you would like to make new friends, provide resources for our parish, the community and the Diocese, please call Lori Baron at 860.464.1517.
