Guild Update

Membership Drive

It’s that time of year when we ask for your continued support of the Guild. 

First and foremost, we ask for your prayers! 

Secondly, if you feel so called, we ask you to assist the Guild financially.  Truly, any and all support, no matter how “large” or “small,” is appreciated and will be put to good use.

This can be done in a number of ways, including:

Save the date – White Mass

October 18

Bishop Matano will be presiding at this year White Mass on October 18 at the Cathedral.  We will be sending a more formal invitation soon.

Save the date – Virtual Journal Club

November 18

Our first Virtual Journal Club on August 6 was a huge success! 

The next Virtual Journal Club will be on November 18 via Zoom, details coming soon!

Guild Partners and Resources

We’ve added a new Guild Partners and Resources page to our website.  Check it out!
