Where Prayerful Hearts Serve With Love

Women of Sacred Heart (WOSH)

 


History

Founded in March 1980, The Women of Sacred Heart (WOSH) supports parish activities, develops spiritual growth, and encourages a strong feeling of community among the women of our parish.

Membership

All women who are members of our Parish are members of WOSH. Attending our meetings is a great way to get to know one another and to share in our parish activities. For some, the family is far away, so it's reassuring and a comfort to know you have WOSH friends!

Parish Activities

WOSH is always ready to lend a hand to parish needs. Here is a sampling of activities in which we participate: First Communion and Confirmation receptions; Giving Tree; Parish Festival; Mardi Gras Dance; Easter Egg Hunt; assist parishioners with special needs or circumstances.

Funeral Ministry 

We try to provide food and serving help with after-funeral receptions here in the parish hall for the family and friends if they so desire. Right now this is usually done by the Women of Sacred Heart. We would like to get a Bereavement Committee started to handle this, as well as providing support and comfort to grieving families, arranging meals, etc.

Events

WOSH Craft Show
Due to the current pandemic level and safety precautions, the Holiday Craft and Gift Show normally scheduled for November will be postponed until sometime next Spring.
 
WOSH Monthly Meetings
The Women of Sacred Heart are still meeting monthly!  Even though we cannot meet in person we are still having monthly meetings via Zoom.  These Zoom meetings are a great way to stay connected with each other.  We will meet virtually the third Thursday of every month and we have different activities planned.  Please RSVP to Sue Straka at [email protected] the Monday prior to our Zoom meeting so that we can get you the supplies needed for the activities.
 
Our Zoom meeting will start at 7:30 pm and all women of the parish are invited to join.
 
Here is a schedule of our upcoming meetings: 
November 19 - Fall Themed Bingo
December 17 - Ugly Sweater Party & Cookie "Exchange"
January 21 - Snowman Craft
