Community Life: Spirituality and Social Groups

Ladies Guild- Celebrating Our 83rd Year


The St. Patrick-St. Anthony Ladies Guild, founded in 1938, takes the Blessed Virgin Mary as their model of Christian discipleship. The Ladies Guild serves the parish through a variety of programs and projects (e.g., making baptismal garments for children baptized in our parish; and awarding annual scholarships to parish students attending Catholic elementary, middle, and high schools). These programs and projects are supported by memorial donations as well as spring and fall fundraising events. In addition, the Ladies Guild hosts a variety of spiritual events for its members and parishioners, including our traditional May Crowning.


Upcoming Events: 

  • The SPRING BASKET BAZAAR sponsored by The Ladies Guild is tentatively planned for Spring 2022.  These themed Baskets, presented in a tea cup auction format, will benefit The Rev. Dawson D. Trenchard Scholarship Fund, the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry and the House of Bread.

Scholarships of $3,500 were awarded by St. Patrick-St. Anthony Ladies Guild to seven parish students in 2020; award total since 2003 is $68,775.00.

2021 Scholarships will be awarded Sunday, October 24, 2021 at The Ladies Guild 10:00 am Mass in our church.
