Our primary functions are to promote Spiritual and Physical unity among women and to see to the care of the altar, adoration chapel and sanctuary. This means we purchase the wine, hosts, and candles used at Mass. We also purchase flowers and other items used to decorate the altar for various seasons. We help clean the Church and hall kitchen. The Altar and Rosary Society is responsible for ordering and selling religious articles at the religious articles counter, which we do before and after every Mass. The Altar and Rosary Society meets every 2nd Wednesday of each month (excluding July each year) @ 1:30 PM.
