Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.
~ Luke 1:45 NAB
Celebrating Our 85th Year
The St. Patrick-St. Anthony Ladies Guild, founded in 1938, takes the Blessed Virgin Mary as their model of Christian discipleship.
The Ladies Guild serves the parish through a variety of programs and projects (e.g., making baptismal garments for children baptized in our parish; and awarding annual scholarships to parish students attending Catholic elementary, middle, and high schools).
These programs and projects are supported by memorial donations as well as spring and fall fundraising events. In addition, the Ladies Guild hosts a variety of spiritual events for its members and parishioners, including our traditional May Crowning.
Did you know that the Ladies Guild has given $77,375 of scholarships to children in the parish since 2003?
