Women's Guild

Our Lady of Lourdes Women's Guild has been in existence since July 1979 with the establishment of the Parish in Sun City West. The purpose of the Women's Guild is to provide the opportunity for the women of the Parish to become acquainted, to share their respective talents, to work together for the benefit of the Parish and to support other worthy causes approved by the membership.  All ladies of the parish are invited to join the Women's Guild. Dues are $5.00, payable by check or cash at the regular meetings, socials, workshops and both church offices.

The Women's Guild does not meet during the summer months, however, the workshops continue each Monday at 9am at Madonna Hall and each Wednesday at 9am at St. Michael's Hall at Prince of Peace church. The workshops are used to create beautiful items for the October Craft Fair and to sort the many donations that we receive throughout the year. All women of the parish are invited to join us at a workshop for a roll and coffee and meet the ladies of the Guild.
