Ladies Sodality Activities & Ministries
Baby Shower for Life, Inc.:
In March, members bring gifts for expectant mothers and their unborn babies, anything from diapers, baby furniture, clothing, etc., which we then turn-over to Life, Incorporated, home for unwed mothers located in Fort Walton Beach.
Following Mass and/or burial service, our ladies prepare and host a reception in the parish hall.
We are honored to assist Covenant Hospice in their Annual Non-Denominational Remembrance Service held at our church every Spring, by providing and hosting a reception after the service. Over 100 families and friends of the deceased come to this event.
Lenten & Advent Day of Renewal:
Our work include ministering to each other and sharing in several spiritual gatherings throughout the year. We join with Catholic women throughout our Deanery to participate in a Day of Renewal, one during Lent and another at Advent time. The day typically includes inspiring spiritual talks by special guest speakers, Reconciliation, Mass, and lunch.
Mardi Gras Pancake Breakfast:
Every year, on a Sunday just before Ash Wednesday, we provide and host a FREE pancake breakfast to all parishioners after the 8:00 am and the 11:00 am Masses.
NCCW "Water for Life" Project:
Our national organization collects funds to provide water to third-world countries. We participate by collecting small change at each meeting.
Our Lady`s Rosary Makers:
Meeting one morning a week, we are not only productive making all kinds of rosaries, but we have fun socializing. The rosaries we make are sent to Catholic military personnel serving overseas, and to many other missions around the world.
The ladies provide and serve a meal after our parish wide mission during Advent and Lent.
Senior Citizen Luncheon:
On the last Friday of the month we host a free luncheon and bingo for the senior citizens of our community, regardless of religious affiliation.
Sunland Christmas Party:
We co-host with the Knights of Columbus this annual event for handicapped citizens who are residents of Sunland Home. We provide a meal and gifts for these adults who are developmentally-challenged.
Twin Cities Pavilion Birthday Party:
On the second Thursday of each month, our group hosts a birthday party to residents of the assisted-living facility.
This is a social support group sponsored by the Sodality, to parishioners who are widows, widowers, single or divorced. They meet on the third Saturday of the month in the Parish Hall after the 8:00am Mass, for a fun morning of bunco and fellowship, and sometimes extended to a luncheon outing.
