Our Lady of the Desert Guild
Our Lady of the Desert Guild is formed to foster the spirit of Marian Spirituality by the Blessed Mother at St. George Roman Catholic Parish and the surrounding community.
All ladies of the parish are welcomed to join. In lieu of dues each active member shall say one decade of the Rosary for the sick and suffering of the parish each day. The Guild's primary income comes from the operation of the Parish Gift Shop and the Annual Tea, held in February.
The Guild makes a monthly donation to the Help for the Needy Ministry, funds the cleaning of Altar linens and sponsors a Seminarian each year. At the request of the family of a deceased member of the parish, these women will say a Rosary and assist in coordinating and serving a meal following a funeral service.
The Guild also assists and coordinates many social events such as Our Lady of Guadalupe Potluck, Soup & Bread during Lent, RCIA reception after Easter Vigil, First Communion Receptions, Life Teen Spaghetti Dinner, and the Baccalaureate Brunch. They also prepare and serve snacks during Vacation Bible School.
The Guild meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 9:30am (The Guild does not meet during the summer.).
