The St. Teresa’s Ladies Group is open to all ladies of the parish and there is no formal membership or dues for this fun-loving, caring group of women of our parish. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the PCC, unless noted in the bulletin. The Ladies Group was one of the founding groups at St. Teresa’s and has welcomed members since before our parish was formed. They have held the annual Spring Chocolate Fest as a fundraiser and have donated proceeds to the North Dearborn Food Pantry. The Ladies also visit the children at the YES Home, play bingo with the residents at the North Dearborn Village and have recently sponsored the first Ladies Inspirational Evening with a faith-filled speaker. This giving group of women donates baskets to the parish Festival and to community events. There is a Sew Group that meets on the third Wednesday of the month that makes prayer quilts and sews with the spirit of giving. Children of the parish receiving their First Communion also receive a small gift from the Ladies as a way to welcome them into the faith. The Ladies Group also assists with funeral dinners for parishioners and their families. All of these activities and more are open to every lady of the parish as we explore our faith together as a true love in action group!

|Find Out More About The Ladies Group Prayer Blanket Ministry This Weekend (September 8-9) After All Masses
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.
