The Holy Spirit Ladies Guild has been an active organization since 1965.  With over 130 members, we continue to expand our activities and charitable outreach.

Guided by faith, prayer and concern for others, our focus is to encourage spiritual and social interaction, promote social and fund-raising events, support parish and community functions, and contribute to a number of charities.  Staying true to our original By-Laws, we constantly grow and change, re-inventing ourselves to meet the needs of our Parish and Community.

Officers of the Guild invite all ladies to consider joining this committed, vibrant group of women and become involved in the social and spiritual life of the Parish.

We welcome you to participate in our activities, events, and meetings.  In past years we have treasured the friendships made and the closeness shared through the planning and execution of our events and fund-raising efforts.   As we embark on this new season, new friendships will be made, and our mission will continue to thrive.  We welcome your support, your ideas, and your fellowship – and invite you to join us at a General Meeting.



GENERAL GUILD MEETINGS are held on the Third Thursday of the month from September through May in Father Mosovsky Hall on the Parish Campus.  General Meetings are at 7:00 p.m.; Dinner Meetings are at 6:30 p.m.

BOARD MEETINGS are held on the First Tuesday of the month from September through June at 10:00 a.m. in the Holy Spirit Room of Father Mosovsky Hall.
