St. George Women's Guild

Women’s Guild Mission

To provide all women with the opportunity to take an active role in the life of St. George Armenian Church, to share in fellowship and service, and to promote the customs, traditions, culture and heritage of our Church.
Our membership is comprised of women of all ages who are dedicated to the faith of their Armenian religion and heritage. The Women’s Guild continues to be the “backbone” of the St. George Parish. The Women’s Guild sponsors many activities throughout the year. They are a vital source of fund-raising to the parish and continue to play an active role in the church’s development and growth. Each individual brings her own special talents to the organization blending with other members to continue to be one of the more important organizations of the present day church.
