The Guild provides:
- A grapevine to communicate to others in the parish when members need special care or concern
- Needed assistance with food or visits
- Witness to our faith through sharing and caring for others and
- A sense of family within the congregation
The Guild Coordinator relies on the Rector, the Church office, and Parishioners to learn of situations to which the Lydia Guild may respond. Thus it is very important that the Rector, Church secretary, or Lydia Guild Coordinator be notified whenever circumstances arise wherein the Lydia Guild may offer assistance. If you wish to become involved in the life of the parish by serving in the Guild’s ministry, contact the Rector, Father Michael Murphy.
The Guild takes its name from Lydia of Thyatira, a Gentile woman who converted to Christianity and offered generous hospitality to Paul and others (Acts 16:13-15).
