Our Ladies' Club welcomes all women of the parish, ages 21 and up. We sponsor a variety of fundraising projects thought the year to beneft the full-time School, the PSR, the Care Service, Birthright, the Missions and more.
St. Ann was an ordinary woman of faith. She represents down-to-earth, common human virtues and holiness through love for family and neighbors. In following her example, the Ladies Club strives to provide for the spiritual and physical needs of the women of the parish.
Please come give us a try. We are a fun group, eager to welcome new members anytime of year. We need the wisdom of older women, the enthusiasm of younger women and the dedication of all women. Watch the bulletin for current events. For more information call Laura at 636-936-1860.

Making "Holiday Pies" in November
Lead by Mary Simeroth, we learned tips on making delicious pies for the holidays. Yum!
Paint Night in July
On Feb. 23, we volunteered to help fill "Alleluia Baskets" to be distributed to children through Care Service to families in need.
Starting in the fall, we will once again be making "ugly quilts" for the homeless. These are easy to make, we provide all the materials, and anyone can help even if you can't sew. If you have old, clean sheets,blankets or other large pieces of fabric, we can use them even if they have holes. We also include toiletries, a towel , cap, gloves, socks, and scarf, if you would like to donate any of those things. If you have items to donate, they could be dropped off at the rectory office when open, the Ministries bldg. when we are working on the quilts, or I would be glad to pick them up if you give me a call (Helen at 922-7573).
From the website www.uglyquilts.org:
WHY THE NAME 'UGLY QUILT'
a. The Sleeping Bag is a utility quilt made from clean used or no-cost fabrics.
b. This simple sleeping bag should not have a market value to assure the homeless are beneficiaries.
c. The name indicates the skill level needed for this tied quilt.
d. The Ugly Quilt can be made in less than a day.
e. A group can make one in an hour.
In 2016 we completed 35 sleeping bags! Care Service distributed these to the homeless, along with the winter gear and toiletries. Thanks to all who gave of time, talent and treasure to help some of God's less fortunate keep warm for the winter.
We will start this project again in the fall 2017.
The Advent Tea is a traditional event the Ladies Club organizes to prepare for the great gift we are about to celebrate at Christmas, the gift of Jesus.
