There’s still time to join the new Catholic Women’s Society of Giving, which will meet Sunday, Jan. 19 for a Mass celebrated by Bishop Alfred Schlert, followed by a “Lunch and Learn” presentation from several ministries that have applied to the society for grants.
Members of the society make a donation of $350 to join, and the funds are then distributed as grants to nonprofit service organizations endorsed by the Diocese. Members will vote on which ministries should receive the grants.
The society enables women and girls to band together to make a positive impact on their communities. It is one example of how lay people are making a difference in the Diocese of Allentown.
The Mass will begin at 10:45 a.m. at St. Mary Church, 94 Walnut Road, Hamburg. The presentations by ministries applying for grants will take place during the luncheon.
To join the society or sign up for the Mass and luncheon, visit the Women's Giving page or call the Office of Stewardship and Development at 1-800-831-4443.
