Our mission is to serve the Parish in any way that is needed. Some of the projects we contribute to are:
The Adam Benson scholarship fund, Pregnancy Crisis Center, St. Charles Youth Summer Camp Program Scholarship Fund and the Food Pantry. We also provide a funeral brunch or luncheon for the families that have lost their loved ones. These are just a few ways we support our Parish.
Please take the time to fill out a membership form and become part of the Ladies Guild.

Fun Facts about Saints
St. Albert the Great’s feast day is Nov. 15th. Church history states that Albert experienced an encounter with the Blessed Virgin Mary around 1223 and this inspired him to become a member of the Dominican Order. He later founded Germany’s oldest university in Cologne. One of his greatest students was St. Thomas Aquinas.
