Assumption Catholic Women

Assumption Catholic Women is a Christian service organization that addresses the needs of our parish as well as those of the community. This Women’s organization has been part of the parish community for many years. We invite you to join this wonderful group of ladies and participate in one of the many areas of ministry in the parish. If you are unable to participate in an activity, we still encourage you to join and keep the group in your prayers. We have a meeting the first Tuesday of every month, from September to May, with work groups meeting every two weeks.

The Mission of Assumption Women is to:

  • Foster fellowship and spiritual growth
  • Foster hospitality
  • Foster charity of Christ

Guided by the corporal works of mercy, our goals are:

  • Become better acquainted with one another
  • Help promote service and fellowship within our parish and community

In addition to these goals, we serve by:

  • Purchasing altar breads
  • Caring for the physical needs of the altar and sacristy
  • Donating money and diapers to Catholic Charities
  • Donating to other charitable and special needs of the parish
  • Providing bereavement receptions
  • Conducting a prayer chain
  • Sending sympathy, get-well, sacramental and other occasions cards

Money raised through dues, bake sales, a silent auction, and by providing services at weddings and other receptions in our parish for parish members and the general public are donated to various agencies in the community, our Parish and the Walla Walla Catholic Schools.
