A Letter of Welcome

The 2017-2018 officers of the Women’s Guild welcome you to a new year of activities, events, and fellowship.  For those unfamiliar with the Guild’s purpose, our main goals are to provide financial support to the church and to promote Christian life in the parish.  To accomplish the first goal, the Guild has several large-scale fund raisers through the year including the Christmas Craft Show, Kolachi Bakes, the Annual Card Party, and a Rummage Sale.  For the second goal, the Women’s Guild sponsors the parish Christmas Dinner, the Marian Devotion/Mother-Child Banquet, and the Summer Picnic.  The Women’s Guild is also responsible for receptions for special events and for funeral dinners.  Many hands are needed for these endeavors and you are welcome to help at as many or as few as you are able.

We encourage all adult women of the parish to participate in this dedicated group.  Being an active member of the Guild will give you the opportunity to make a difference in our parish while enjoying the company of a diverse group of women.  New people, new ideas, and suggestions are always appreciated.  If you would like to volunteer at any event or would like to join a particular committee, please see one of the officers or the chairperson of that committee.

The Women’s Guild meetings are scheduled from September through May on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. unless otherwise stated.  As always, we will have interesting and informative programs at our meetings.  In addition, this will be a particularly exciting year as we see the building campaign come to fruition. 

Thank you for choosing to be part of our Women’s Guild.  With your help, we can make a difference.​

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please bless this group of ladies who are willing to share their time and talents to support the Women’s Guild here at St. William Church.  Throughout the year give them the strength and fortitude to make every event successful.  ~Amen

May God Bless You All,

A Prayer for Our Sisters of St. Anthony & St. William

Dear God,

These are our sisters whom we love and this is our prayer for them. Help them live their lives to the fullest.  Guide and inspire them to do what is right and just.  Help them to shine in the darkest places where it is impossible to love.  Lift them up when they need You the most, and let them know that when they walk with You they will always be safe.  We ask this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

How to Become a Member


To become a member of the Women’s Guild is as easy as 1, 2, 3; and it’s free!

  • First you must be at least 18 years old 
  • Second you must be a member of St.William Parish
  • And third you just come to the meetings


The Women’s Guild is much more than a group of ladies getting together for an evening. Rather, because of the fellowship, tradition and purpose it offers, it becomes part of a woman’s very identity. It encompasses the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and your unique skills.  Your voice is important.


The Women's Guild provides many social, spiritual and service opportunities for parish women.  You will be able to stay in touch with parish life and be a part of what is happening within the Guild.  At the heart of the Guild is friendship and support.


By becoming a member of the Guild you will support all of the great work we do for our parish and community.  Every woman has her own unique talent. Share your time and talents, or suggest a new activity or event that will benefit our Parish. How much you do is up to you.
