Guilds and Groups



Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta Rosary Makers Guild  


The Blessed Mother of Teresa of Calcutta Rosemary Makers Guild is unique when it comes to guilds. We are, as described, rosary makers who make wire, chain and bead rosaries for St. Patrick's Parishioners. Our members are men, women and children who enjoy working with their hands to construct rosaries. Another special aspect of our meeting time is that we pray the rosary as we work to begin constructing a rosary. After working and praying for an hour, we take the rosaries we have begun home to complete it that month. We meet once a month during the school year months in the church REC room in the basement. We prayerfully make these rosaries for new members moving into the Parish, for babies being baptized, for men and women coming into the Catholic Faith through RCIA, and for other special needs identified by the Parish. We provide the instruction and supplies needed to make each rosary. We welcome anyone interested in rosary making at any time during the year.

St. Gerard Guild 


St. Gerard “Grow” Guild is a group of mothers that meets the first Tuesday of each month, September through May, from 8:45 to 11 am. Meetings are held in St. Patrick's Parish Center. A typical meeting starts with breakfast food, followed by a craft or speaker and discussion with other moms. We assist with the St. Patrick Preschool fundraiser, "Taste of the Arts" and other events/needs around the parish. If you are looking to meet other moms, feel inspired in your faith, your family, or your home, join us! Babysitting is available in the adjoining room for kids one year and older; infants stay in the meeting with mom. Donations are accepted, not required, to pay for babysitting, crafts, and speakers. We look forward to meeting you!

St. Rose of Lima Guild 


St. Rose of Lima is the patron saint of florists and gardeners. As such, our guild’s mission is: to Praise God, to decorate the inside of the church with flowers as liturgically appropriate, and to socialize. While Easter and Christmas are our biggest projects each year, we have year -long ongoing responsibilities. We welcome parishioners of all skill levels —no experience is required! If you are interested in learning more or would like to attend a meeting to see what we are all about, please contact our chairperson or any member of the St. Rose Guild.

St. Monica Guild 


The St. Monica's Guild assists with a variety of projects at St. Patrick’s. We are in charge of the "Purificators,” which are the linens used during communion. We are also in charge of the St. Patrick's Irish Bash, and we help with the annual Stewardship Fair. During the Christmas holiday we have served needy families by organizing donations. Also, each year during Valentine’s Day we give a special gift to a deserving Servant of the Lord. Throughout the year we assist St. Patrick’s Parish in organizing other social and charitable events, as the need arises.
