Introducing Monthly SPC Women's Group Gatherings!

The SPC Women’s Group, also known as the Apostolate of Women, will now gather monthly to meet new and old friends and to provide all women of the parish with updates on recent activities of our pillars (Spiritual, Service, and Social) as well as our guilds (small groups). . We’ll also share opportunities for you to get involved and, most importantly, enjoy each other’s fellowship.

You don’t have to be a member to attend, although of course we would love you to join the group.

Many women have told us they would love to get involved yet can’t commit a lot of time. That’s okay – there are plenty of one or two hour service opportunities for you to contribute your time or talent. 

Don’t miss out on our upcoming gatherings (doors open at 7 p.m., meeting starts at 7:30 p.m.):

· Tuesday, April 9 in the Holy Family Chapel

· Monday, May 6 in the Holy Family Chapel

We look forward to seeing you there! If you have any questions or topics you’d like included in these meetings, please send us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
