It is important for the Church to create the conditions that will permit many young people to say 'yes' in generous response to God‘s loving call... It is my hope that the local Churches will become places where vocations are carefully discerned and their authenticity tested; places where young men and women are offered wise and strong spiritual direction. In this way, the Christian community itself becomes a manifestation of the Love of God in which every calling is contained.
—Pope Benedict XVI, 49th World Day of Prayer for Vocations
The Saint Anne and the Child Mary Guild is a spiritual guild for young ladies beginning in the 4th grade through high school. The Guild is directly involved in assisting with the beauty and care of our Church environment. The Guild helps young ladies discern how best to serve the church community, including preparing for the holy celebration of the Mass, seasonal devotional spaces, floral design for displays of statues, icons, flowers and plants. The Guild is also an opportunity for us to pray together and receive instruction about feminine and Dominican spirituality, consecrated life, and motherhood with the spiritual assistance and guidance of our own Dominican Sisters of Saint Cecilia. Once a month, September through May, we will come together to pray, serve, and learn. Meeting topics include the Mass and Sacraments, Sacred Scripture, Mary and the Rosary, and the lives of the Saints. We also have planned some great activities, crafts, and snacks, and you won’t want to miss our end-of-the-year Tea Party! The Guild is sponsored by our head sacristan/liturgical coordinator, the Dominican sisters, and mentor mothers. Please go to our website to sign up
We would love for you to join us on Saturday, October 8. Bring any friends who might be interested! We’ll gather from 9-11:15am in the Parish Center.
