Julie Bosdachin, Nancy Lopez, Lucy Solares, Dianna Hampton, Margie Delgado and Leila Giries (missing is Ruby Gaytan)

The flower which was chosen for this morning’s installation is the
“yellow rose”, a symbol of God’s beauty and artistry, has long
been associated with spiritual enlightenment and wisdom,
representing the divine energy that exists within all of us. It’s a sign of
joy and happiness and long-lasting friendships that will only grow
stronger with time.

There’s nothing more rewarding than a successful Guild Event. It takes
strategy, confidence, and organization to achieve positive results. It’s
through inspiration, and providing direction while adhering to detail and
timelines; by adding a dash of excitement to the mix and focusing on the
big picture.
There will be fundraisers for a worthy cause, as well as wonderful
events that we look forward to, which provide great fellowship within our
Parish and community.
Who, you ask, is behind this task force? Let us introduce Leila Giries who
will be installed this morning as the Ways and Means Chair, a member of
the Executive Board. Leila will always have a group of energetic people
who will work together to help follow through with the planning by working
together to achieve those positive goals.
Leila, please accept these flowers which represent your dedication to the
Woman’s Guild. Your yellow rose represents your hard work, and your wish to
help others and explore new horizons. Your kindness and encouragement
are wonderful traits, they bring inner peace and happiness and make life

Leila Giries,
May Our Lady, Mother of Divine Grace be your Patroness, her Feast Day is
July 23rd.

There is a feeling of peace, comfort, and sparkle within these walls.
There’s a radiance of sunlight coming through the stained glass. And it’s
that sense of spirituality, where God welcomes us all. Since the beginning
of the Women’s Guild in 1951 we have appreciated that warm welcome
every time we enter these doors; that’s 72 years of keeping the beauty of
God’s house!
The vision is to maintain a welcoming and inviting place for Parishioners and
visitors alike. The mission is to continue with a humble work of cleanliness
and to maintain its appearance with integrity, care and respect.
Let us introduce Margie Delgado who will be installed this morning as the
Altar Chair, a member of the Executive Board… Why not join the “behind
the Sacristy” crew. You will not only burn a few calories but your body will
release endorphins and make you feel exhilarated. You’ll find that polishing
the marble isn’t so bad, and placing the missiles back in their place is a
breeze; it’s such small task once a week; and when completed you will
have that inner feeling of peace in your heart because you have done a
true work of joy.
Margie, please accept these flowers which represent your dedication to the
Woman’s Guild. Your yellow rose represents joy, happiness, and divine
energy, with special blessings from the Mother of God and her Son.

The Woman’s Guild Newsletter essentially creates a spirit of unity, it is one
major key to communicating with its members.
This takes organizational skills and creativity with timelines and deadlines.
Spending countless hours editing and revising articles and determining
which articles will actually appear in an issue while cooperating with
contributors and everyone who makes our newsletter possible. There’s
support in assisting with not only the difficult and time-consuming task of
mailing preparation but also that of managing correspondence and official
forms of documentation on behalf of the Guild.
There may be rain, hail, snow, and maybe even a tornado, but that newsletter
will get through. This takes perseverance and patience. According to
scripture, patience is a virtue and a fruit of the holy spirit, a vital part of
trusting in God. Ruby Gaytan is teaching this morning and unable to
attend, however, she will be duly installed as the Corresponding Secretary
and a member of the Executive Board.
