Membership in the St. Michael Women's Association is open to all the women of the St. Michael the Archangel Church and St. Timothy Chapel.

The mission of the SMWA is: 

  • To have a diverse community of women members. 
  • To enrich the spiritual and education life of our members as we strive to live the beliefs and values of our Catholic faith. 
  • To provide spiritual programs and community service activities.
  • To provide scholarship assistance to our young parishioners whenever possible.

 

October 2018 - SMWA held their Second Annual Members Only Bingo Event on Thursday, October 18. Thirty-five women enjoyed an evening of Bingo with refreshments. Dorothy Riera and Jill Gussis led the Bingo event calling the Bingo numbers and handing out fun prizes to all the winners. Father Ian joined us for a short while and started the evening with a special Bingo prayer. All the women had a fun time anticipating winning and then cheering on the winners.
