The OLG Altar Society holds an Annual Membership Drive, but membership is open throughout the year.  Women 18 years of age or older are invited to join with other women of the parish to share their gifts, talents, time, energy, and new ideas and, in return, experience spiritual renewal, purpose, and fellowship.  Annual dues are only $20.

As we enter our Church, our eyes focus on the altar and to the Risen Christ. We observe the flowers, plants, linens, candles and more. The mission or our OLG Altar Society is the care of the Atlar of the House of the Lord.

We Work – We Pray – We Celebratefall-flower-change-out-2

We strive to support our Lord’s House, which includes providing the bread and wine used at our celebrations of the Eucharist. To do this, we have two fundraisers each year: our annual Plant Sale in the Spring and our Annual Craft Sale in the fall. We thank you for your support.

Members of our OLG Altar Society pray together. We share mini-retreats, rosaries, stations of the cross during Lent and offer Masses for our living and deceased members.

We celebrate by supporting and assisting our Clergy and Staff inways that are needed for the smooth administration of our entire parish. We also host Summer and Christmas Socials.

Are you able to join with us in the mission of our parish? The job is immense, but the laborers are few. We need you! Meeting times are the First Tuesday of each month at 7 pm in the Parish Hall.
