ST PHILIP NERI ALTAR AND ROSARY SOCIETY
As Christian women, we honor the Mother of Jesus best by trying to imitate her goodness and quiet service to others. In a nutshell, we take care of the unglamorous but necessary things such as cleaning our worship space; purchasing the wine, hosts, sacred linens and priest’s vestments. We contribute to parish maintenance with fundraisers; we lend a hand for funeral receptions and social events. And, beyond that, we quietly support charitable efforts in the wider community – outside parish boundaries – remembering that all people are beloved by God.
During these uncertain times, the members of the Altar Society are honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary in the safety of our homes. Even though we are not meeting physically, our society enjoys a strong bond which will carry us through until it is once again safe for our mission to continue in the usual manner. Our wish is for everyone to stay safe and healthy.
