The Altar Sodality’s purpose is to unite all women of OLV Parish to render service to God and to promote fellowship and spirituality. We have a special devotion to the Eucharist and we have the honor of preparing the altar for Mass, the upkeep of altar linens, the maintenance of the sanctuary and other sacristan duties. We sponsor activities for the entire church community such as the monthly Burse Club collection for seminarians, monthly military collection for care packages for our soldiers, Angel Tree ministry, Santa's Breakfast, decorating the vestibule at Christmas, monthly Bunko games at night, semi-annual church cleaning, preparation and, distribution of Confirmation bows, spiritual retreats and bake sales. We also purchase items for the altar and from time to time, co-sponsor workshops in our parish. Day meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, September through May, at 9:30 AM in the Parish office Conference Room, unless otherwise noted in the bulletin. We also have night meetings on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM in the Parish Social Hall (Room C) that includes a game of Bunko. We would love to have you join our group!
