The aim of the club shall be to provide opportunities for social, spiritual and community service activities for the women of Saint Gilbert’s, and to give time, effort, and financial aid to the educational ministries of the parish. Saint Gilbert Women’s Club welcomes all women of Saint 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, a service project or program for the month (guest speaker, craft or game) followed by social time to reconnect with friends.
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.
Service projects include: Prison Ministry, PADS, the teens at Allendale and Project Linus. We sponsor an annual coat drive for St. Benedict the African. We also support the Parish, Saint Gilbert School, REP, SPRED and TGIF.
Women of St. Gilbert Parish and friends: Project Linus was created to provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through the gifts of new handmade blankets. The blankets are distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug. SGWC will supply the blanket material. Please bring fabric scissors and your favorite sip or small bite to share. Contact Patti Wulf at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
