OktoberFest… October 1st in the Multi-Purpose Room
Business Meeting begins at 7:00 PM.  We will be celebrating Oktoberfest food, drink and entertainment with all things German, as well as collecting $$$ for the Lake County Prison Ministry. All women of the parish are welcome!  
The aim of the club shall be to provide opportunities for social, spiritual and community service 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, 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, St. Gilbert School, REP, SPRED and TGIF.
