Ministries - Altar & Rosary Society

One of the treasures of Saint Mary’s Church is our Altar & Rosary Society.  Their story began in 1895 when women organized themselves to pray and to serve.  Today, on the 1st Sunday of most months, they assemble for 9:00 Mass – praying the Rosary before Mass – and then gather in Hammes Hall for a formal meeting.

Members of the Altar & Rosary Society care for the linens and vessels used during the celebration of Mass. 

Among their noteworthy efforts is the assistance they provide to help Saint Mary’s support those ministries helping people-in-need at  1) the nearby Saint Clare’s Clinic, and 2) the Women’s Care Centers in the diocese.

Women (age 18 and older) who are members of Saint Mary’s may join the Altar & Rosary Society.
