On Sunday, 17 September 2017, the Guild of Our Lady and St Gianna is hosting an Open House from 4-5:30p in Croghan Hall. The Guild of Our Lady and St. Gianna is open to girls age 5 and older! It was inaugurated in 2013 with over 60 girls receiving the blessing of missionaries adapted from the Book of Blessings. Young ladies in the guild are recognizable at Mass for wearing white dresses symbolic of the purity of their Baptism and a hand made blue satin sash symbolic of their devotion to Our Lady and trimmed in lace, a symbol of the beauty of the heavenly liturgy. For more information contact Suzanne Gubitosa  at 864.420.2511 or sgubitosa108@gmail.com. 

The Aims of the Guild

The principal aim of the Guild of Our Lady and Saint Gianna is simple: to make saints!

The other aims of the Guild are as follows:

1. To sanctify the young women of the parish by giving them an opportunity to pray and learn more about their faith.

2. To help the members fall in love with Jesus, the Prince of Peace, principally through their active participation in the Sacred Liturgy.

3. To teach the members how to pray the Mass as the center of their spiritual lives.

4. To form young women to be virtuous and courageous leaders in the heart of the Church.

5. To give young women an opportunity to develop leadership skills by nurturing the feminine genius within.

6. To integrate the members into the liturgical life of the parish by public thanksgiving after Mass and participating in processions and devotions.

7. To raise up young women to have a maternal heart of service in the heart of the Church.
