About The Saint Teresa Ladies Group
The Ladies Group is open to all women of the parish, post-high school. We believe in service to the parish and to the community, as well as fellowship with on another. We meet every THIRD TUESDAY of the month from 7 – 9 p.m. in the PCC. We do service projects throughout the year. We provide baskets for raffles at the Benedicta Bash in the summer (August) and the Spring event sponsored by the parish council. We visit the Y.E.S. Home in Manchester, Indiana, annually serving the residents dinner, taking them school supplies, and personal hygiene items. We end the evening there by playing a few fun games. We play BINGO with the residents at North Dearborn Village and provide prizes for those games as well as snacks for the evening. We sponsor an EVENING OF INSPIRATION for the women of the parish in May. At our meetings we also have fun activities such as crafting, games, cards, mystery dinner ,and of course, refreshments!
The Ladies group also has a sub-group called The Sew Club. The Sew Club meets the THIRD WEDNESDAY of each month from 10 am to 3 pm in the PCC. The Sew Club makes Prayer Quilts, items for the baskets previously mentioned, and hats and scarves for children. We have donated to outside organizations such as The Ronald McDonald House and The North Dearborn Pantry. On Sew Day we also have fellowship by having lunch together.

The Ladies Group Prayer Blanket Ministry
Several years ago, the Ladies Sewing Group of St. Teresa’s received a request from a parishioner for a Prayer Blanket for a family member that was seriously ill. At the time we had made lap quilts that we donated to various local events. We came up with a Prayer Blanket we hoped would give comfort along with the prayers and blessings from all of us. Since that first Prayer Blanket, we have received requests for 20 additional blankets. If anyone knows of a seriously ill person that would receive comfort from receiving a Prayer Blanket, they are available at the office. A request card with the name of who will receive the blanket and who is requesting it is kept in an album at the office. They are presented in a small gift bag along with a handmade card and prayer bookmarker. The person receiving the blanket does not have to be a member of the parish.
