This was my 37th Kairos and I am more certain than ever that this retreat is the work of God’s Holy Spirit.
The Heart of the Parish
Since 1939, the OLPH Women's Club has been bringing women together. Although we are a large group, with nearly 900 members, our guild system breaks the club into small communities. Currently, 38 guilds make up the Women's Club.
Membership in the Women's Club offers you the opportunity to become actively involved in the life of our parish while forging life-long friendships with wonderful women.
For more information about becoming a member, please contact the Membership Coordinator: Meg Phelan
Through our many efforts, the Women’s Club continues to be the largest contributor to the parish General Offertory.
