The aim of the club shall be to provide opportunities for social and spiritual activities for the women of St. Gilbert’s, and to give time, effort, and financial aid to the educational ministries of the parish.

St. Gilbert Women’s Club welcomes all women of St. Gilbert Parish. We are a diverse group of women that gather together for faith sharing, friendship and ministry in a fun, social environment. 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. Our meetings consist of prayer, a short business meeting, followed by social time to reconnect with friends or a program (guest speaker, craft, Fashion Show).

Our organizational year runs from September through May of each year with meetings on the first or second Tuesday of the month starting at 7:00PM. Check the bulletin monthly for additional information and meeting date changes. Starting in 2015-16, Women’s Club dedicated most meetings to a specific charity or cause. We supported the Prison Ministry, PADS, Willow House, and the teens at Allendale and made tie dye pillow cases for hospitalized children.

We also support the Parish, Saint Gilbert School, REP, SPRED and TGIF. We sponsor an annual coat drive.
