Ladies of St. Dominic

 

Mission and Purpose of Ladies Club

To emulate the Blessed Mother, Mary-this is the unspoken challenge presented to every woman who becomes a member of The Ladies of Saint Dominic. As followers of the Blessed Mother, we strive to follow her example as not only the Mother of the Lord, but to maintain a continuous vigil as the heart of his followers as well.

The Ladies of St. Dominic has a long tradition of serving our church and community as keeper and protector of the bond formed from our Holy Mother. Through our acts of charity, compassion and selfless love, we maintain the foundation of peace and eternal nurturing as mothers of the church.

As the Blessed Mother spoke to St. Dominic, through the rosary and the scapula, I will save the world. So to, the Ladies of St. Dominic strive to maintain the trust given to each of us upon our baptism-lead by example.
