The Saints JFX Women’s Club welcomes women of all ages. Members focus on social and fundraising events, as well as spiritual development and charity based services. Join the Women’s Club and be a part of our parish family.
There are two kinds of membership in the Women’s Club, namely Guild Members and Associate Members. All members receive acopy of the membership directory, a monthly e-mail newsletter and invitations to all events hosted by the Women’s Club.
Guild Members are affiliated with a specific guild (groups) and are encouraged to attend guild meetings held during the year. Members may join more than one guild. Guild meetings provide an opportunity for members to meet new people, renew friendships and participate in the vibrant life of our parish.
In addition to Guild activities, members are encouraged to attend our Fall Membership, Christmas, and Spring Installation dinners, the Valentine’s Tea Fundraiser, and participate in other events and activities listed on our Membership Form (attached).
Associate Members are not a part of any specific guild, and are welcome to attend the Fall Membership, Christmas, and Spring Installation dinners and the Valentine’s Tea Fundraiser. In addition, these members can participate in other events and activities listed on our Membership Form.
There are currently four Guilds (groups). Below please find brief descriptions of the Guilds. You are welcome to join more than one guild based on your interests.
Guild 2 – Moms of “Tots”
Guild 3 – Moms of “Teens”
Guild 4 – Moms of “Grands”
Guild 5 – Moms of “Grads”
The guild "names" provide a profile guideline for each group but in no way indicate that members need to have children in that bracket or any children at all. We welcome women of all ages, with or without children of their own.
See below for links to join the club, either via an online form or by printing a form to mail in. We ask our members to pay 'dues' every year. This money is only used for charitable projects and gifts.
