Ave Maria Guild
The Ave Maria Guild is a group of dedicated women with special devotion to the Blessed Mother. Their main goal is to assist the pastor in spiritual and financial needs. The religious articles store, known as Mary’s Cove, is a significant source of income along with other fundraisers, enabling the Guild to donate money to many charities. One of the primary charities is The Good Samaritan Mission in Wimauma, which assists migrants and other needy families in Central Florida.
In addition to Mary’s Cove, one of the Guild’s most successful fundraisers is the annual Nickel Social, held in March each year. The Guild also hosts two luncheons per year, a spring luncheon at a different venue each year, and a holiday luncheon at the Bayou Club at Bardmoor. A holiday bake sale is held in December.
Along with a monthly meeting at the Parish Center held on the first Monday after the first Sunday, Guild members gather on the first Sunday of the month at 8:30am for a Communion Mass to remember their intentions and pray for their deceased members. The Guild is always open to new members.
