St. Benedict Women’s Club

The historic Women’s Club began in 1949 at the wishes of our then pastor, Father Harold Ritter. Our legend continues at this time. Due to a newly built elementary school that needed funding, Father Ritter planned to enlarge the booths at the picnic with donated parishioner’s handmade crafts to assist with some of the school’s financing. Thus the women’s club was created.

In the 1950s the next pastor, Father Boehmicke, requested additional support services from the women’s club. The 70’s produced many parish changes and the club became part of the “Hospitality” ministry. Also, at this time the women’s club began serving bereaved families. If there is a need at St. Benedict the woman’s club is prepared to step in to help. The women’s club offers a fellowship opportunity for women of all ages.

Call Jamie Argenbright at 502-833-4677 if you would like to join.
