Membership

St. Gilbert Women's Club welcomes all women of St. Gilbert Parish. We are a social/fundraising organization that seeks to draw the women of the parish closer together in friendship and service to the church. Our group is over 25 years old and our membership is between 50 to 75 annually. The Women's Club is an intergenerational group of women from their 20's to 70's+ and our common goal is to grow closer as members of a church community while providing opportunities for fun and service. Typically, our efforts bring many events to our church body and we are so proud to be able to fund an average of $10,000 (has been up to $20,000) each year to subsidize educational goals of the entire parish.

Our organizational year runs from September through May of each year with meetings on the first or second Tuesday of the month. Our meetings consist of a short business meeting to discuss the workings of our club, followed by a social time to re-connect and laugh with friends, which usually includes a program of some kind. Our programs range from spiritual speakers to crafts to comedians to whatever interesting topic you can imagine. We also provide many events to the parish each year. Examples are coat drives, craft shows and our anual Fashion Show. All are welcome to attend any meeting, and we hope after joining us you will become a member. We look to new faces to keep us strong, vibrant and motivated in our mission to support the parish and help us grow as women.
