Women of Holy Spirit
All women of the parish are members of the Women of Holy Spirit (WOHS). Each of you are welcome to attend our monthly gatherings and optional programs offered throughout the year. We meet September through May at the church on the third Monday of the month at 7:00 PM. The monthly gatherings vary and may include a guest speaker, a social, pot luck dinner, wine and cheese, or other fun activity. Our program agenda may warrant a change in date, time and location. These changes will be announced in the church bulletin prior to the event.
Lunch Bunch was recently formed and enables ladies to meet throughout the year for lunch at various quaint locations. It was designed to appeal to women who prefer daytime activities. The ladies who participate have enjoyed companionship, fellowship and several fun outings. To join the Lunch Bunch, contact Fran McBride at 754-0122. Read our 2015-2016 program agenda online or click here to download a copy. Print it so it is easily accessible and join us on our journey to make a difference to our church and community.
