Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church - Hot Springs Village, AR

(Updated October 2012)

The purpose of this organization is to unite all women parishioners in religious and social activities. Our efforts are beneficial to the Parish and to the needs of impoverished women and children in our locale.  The following is a list of the 9 guilds under the umbrella of Ladies of Sacred Heart.  Each guild has a Captain, or Co-Captains and its own activities.  Any parishioner or spouse of a Sacred Heart parishioner (whether Catholic or not) is welcome to join the Ladies of Sacred Heart.  One may join as a member of one of our guilds, or one may join as a non-affiliated member without seeking membership in one of our guilds.  All are welcome!
