The Ladies Guild of St. Dominic was founded in the earliest years of the parish, over 60 years ago, to promote the spiritual, social and intellectual lives of women.
Just as the church has evolved since the late 1940s, so has the organization that now goes by the simplified name of The Guild. Our mission today retains the social aspect, and our distinctly feminine camaraderie, but we partner our projects with service – service to the parish, service to local Catholic organizations, and service to other philanthropic ventures, as needed, especially those that pertain to the health and welfare of women.
Our signature events include The Little Folks Shop, a Christmas-time shopping opportunity for children, and a spring event – usually a lunch or dinner that’s open to all parishioners. Each spring we purchase items and put together 100 personal care packages. They are taken to El Salvador and distributed to the patients seen by the doctors on the medical mission trip. Other projects appear regularly, either by exploration or by request and we pool our resources and energy to get the job done – and we have fun doing it.
We are blessed to be part of a thriving St. Dominic community. We remain firmly rooted in the past with a rich history behind us, and retain our commitment to serving the needs of the parish now and in the future. We invite women of all ages to join us – to help us, to inspire us, to teach us, and shape us – but mostly to be a part of us, The Guild.
