Welcome

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Women's Club

Welcome and thank you for your participation in the Women’s Club! Since women began gathering at OLPH in 1939, the Women’s Club has nurtured a proud and strong legacy. We are grateful for your service and commitment!

Our theme for the Women’s Club this year is Resilience. May we walk hand in hand with each other and our faith as we bring new light and a strong sense of resilience to the year ahead. Every day is an opportunity to look forward and create anew. May we not let yesterday define tomorrow. As a community of women, let us remember the beauty of our differences and the strength and power we have together as one to create a meaningful impact in our community and parish.

Please take a minute to review this online portal and see all the wonderful things we do at the Women’s Club. Let us remember our faith, hope, and love in Christ as we work and play together on the many Women’s Club events this year. We are all volunteers with the desire to experience friendship while making our community a more welcome and better place.

I have a few things to bring to your attention:

DATABASE: Please send any changes in your Guild (address, email, phone) throughout the year to Julie Doell (olphwcsecretary@gmail.com).

MEMBERSHIP: Jeanne Simons and Kathy Quinn are the Membership Chairs this year and are ready to assist your membership needs. Please let them know of any potential new members who would like to join your Guild or become a member of the Women’s Club (olphwcmembership@gmail.com).

NEW GUILD EVENT/PROJECTS: Please send any new ideas to the Executive Board. The Women’s Club thrives on the new ideas you bring! If an event or project seems too big a task for your Guild alone, we are happy to connect you with another Guild that may be looking to help. There are almost 900 women who are members of the Women’s Club. Many hands make light work!

FLYERS: If you need to pass out flyers or handouts at the meetings, please bring 50 copies to pass out at the board meeting. One to each Guild as well as the Executive Board and Father Boland.

AGENDA: If you have anything you would like to be included in our monthly meeting agendas please send to Meghan Johnson by the Sunday before the meeting. (olphwcpresident@gmail.com).

I hope your guild has a wonderful year! Please remember we have an incredible resource of generous hearts and warm smiles.

God Bless,
Meghan Johnson

Hope (2020-2021) - Maureen Clifford

Take a minute to look at all the wonderful things the Women’s Club does. Take a moment to pray about your identity and how your life can become a little richer and a bit more meaningful in this amazing community.

One Another (2018-2019) - Jeanne Simmons
Love one another, pray for one another, encourage one another, serve one another and teach one another.

Each one, bring one (2017-2018) - Ann Waris
May we Seek, Share, and Rejoice striving always to be a faith filled welcoming Community.

God Tells Us to Seek Humility, Service, and Love (2016-2017) - Lisa Mullen

Therefore, we will continue with our plan to send our emails that will include all upcoming Women’s Club events on a monthly basis. We will also provide a reminder for any Women’s Club sponsored event that is requested by the sponsoring guild before the upcoming event. However, all other parish events will not be sent out separately from the Women’s Club.

Instead, if requested, School, Religious Ed, Men’s Club, Ministries or other parish events will be included in the monthly communication at the bottom of the email under new heading entitles UPCOMING PARISH COMMUNITY EVENTS.

Membership Process

  • Women interested in joining the women’s club should contact the membership chair

  • The membership chair will discuss placement availabilty with the interested party

  • Individual guilds submit potential new members to membership chair for confirmation of placement

  • Women will be placed in guilds throughout the year (September – May)

  • If members leave a guild or change their status, membership chair should be informed. all changes submitted to web secretary will be forwarded to membership chair

Thank you for volunteering to be your guild’s representative for our Women’s Club community service. By volunteering for this service you help make a nursing home resident’s day a little brighter. What little we can do to make them smile and feel appreciated is the reason we participate.

Please see the attached information sheet for each individual facility. Each facility is made up of different residents with different capabilities and interests. By reviewing the sheet for that specific facility and adhering to the recommendations, we will be able to provide an enjoyable experience for the residents.

Due to covid-19, some of the nursing homes may not be allowing visitors. Please work out arrangements with the social director. Ask if you are able to send cards, care packages, birthday gifts, etc. Each home will have different guidelines, but any recognition we can give the residents is especially important at this time.

The schedule for each individual guild is also included. Make sure you review the information ahead of time so proper planning and arrangements can be made.

Please call me with any questions you may have and thank you again.

Emergency Casseroles History

Paul D’Amore joined the Sharing Committee when it first began. Helping the hungry was the main focus, so in February 1984, Paul found volunteers who made casseroles for the shelters in the Inner City, which he delivered once a month. This led to his collaboration with Sally Corbett, the 1984 Women’s Club President, where Sally initiated the idea of guilds providing the casseroles. Paul has continued to manage this program since the inception in 1984. The original shelter at St. Sylvester’s in the Logan Square neighborhood is now closed, and casseroles are delivered to Catholic Charities Madonna House in Wrigleyville.

There are currently 28 guilds that provide 6 casseroles month. With each casserole feeding approximately 10 people, we are providing over 1500 meals a year.

Thank you for your continued support!

Women's Club Closet

The Women’s club closet is located behind the stage in McDonnell Hall.
This closet is kept locked. When you have a guild event coming up,
please contact me to get items from the closet.

The rectory office has a key to the closet. Once you have cleared your
request with Liz, you can get the key directly from the rectory if
needed.

Attached is the current inventory of your items in our closet. We have
many things that can be used for your event. It is important to check
the supply closet prior to purchasing or renting items. It should be
noted that the church and school also use items from our closet and
there is a demand at times for our inventory so please give a two week
notice.

Please return the cleaned items within a week.

Thank you
