The Altar Society invokes the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary and derives spiritual strength through praying the Rosary. The mission of the Altar Society is to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary by providing for the needs of the Sanctuary where her Son lives in the Tabernacle and the Mass is celebrated. The Altar Society assures that the Sanctuary is furnished with linens, proper vestments, and reflects the beauty of the liturgical seasons.
The Altar Society participates in activities that strengthen spirituality and fellowship among members and they occasionally host fundraisers to support the needs of the parish.
Membership is open to all adult women in good standing in the Church. Monthly meetings are held on the Thursday following the first Sunday of the month. Members are encouraged to celebrate Mass together as a group once a month (first Sunday of each month) and are asked to come early on that Sunday so they may pray the Rosary.
