Sisterhood of Marietta

The Sisterhood of Marietta’s mission is to imitate our patroness, Saint Maria Goretti, in her deep devotion to and love of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. We strive to grow in faith, form Christ-centered friendships, serve our parish community, and offer intercessory prayer to our patroness.

WHO WE ARE: The Sisterhood of Marietta is a place for high school aged girls to grow in their faith and to form lasting faith filled friendships among their peers. This group is a safe place for young women to be supported in their faith and loved through every obstacle that being a teenage girl of faith in todays world entails. In the spirit of fellowship, we act as counterparts to the Knights of the Holy Eucharist, the Sisterhood of Marietta serves together at masses to build reverence for the Holy Eucharist through prayer and participation in the Mass. The ladies work together to serve our parish community, as well as the needs of the extended Westfield community, through acts of service and prayer led by the intercession of St. Maria Goretti.

Ministry Description

Meetings:

Meetings are every Monday (unless school break/holiday), 7:00-8:30 PM, in the Youth Room of the church basement. These meetings will be a lot of things: prayer, faith sharing, learning, service, fellowship, and more. Meetings are meant to serve those in attendance, and are low pressure commitment. We understand how busy teens are; there is practice, games, work, homework, and most importantly, family obligations. We will also have events and activities outside of Monday night meetings, such as attending speakers, retreats, and sleepovers. By serving as a counterpart to the Knights, we pray the rosary before every mass that they serve, as well as at 5:30 mass, once a month. Additionally, we will do service projects as a group.
