All women of the Basilica with a passion and desire to make a positive impact are invited to join our ministry. Our goals are to actively make an impact in the lives of others through service opportunities in our parish and our community.

The Catholic Women’s Club ministry is to provide spiritual and social activities, encourage participation in parish life, fundraising for the parish, and rendering assistance to our Priests as needed.

The Women’s Club monthly meetings and activities provide opportunities to meet new people, renew friendships, and participate in the life of St. Mary’s Parish. We meet year-round on the first Wednesday of every month.

All women are encouraged to be active members of this ministry.

For more information, or if you are interested in participating please contact:
Debbie Lazorik, CWC President (740) 434-3769;
Teresa Domico, Vice President; Nancy Funk, Secretary; Barb Ritchie, Treasurer
