Our Lady of Guadalupe...

As Catholic women we are called to live our Christian ethics and beliefs, not only on Sundays but throughout our daily lives at home, work and play.
Our goal in Our Lady of Madonna Sodality shall be to incorporate and uphold our beliefs in every aspect of our lives. We must be willing to live our faith and by our example, our Christian way of life will be evident to those around us.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Madonna Sodality

We are a service organization for our church, our community and the women of Our Lady of Guadalupe. No matter what our personal acts of service are, we collect once a month to inform, assess and prepare for our joint efforts of service and three times a year in retreat for more personal spiritual times and for our own personal renewal.



The Madonna Sodality meets on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 pm.in the Furth Center. All ladies are welcome. New or old parishioners are encouraged to come and meet this active group. New ideas are always welcome. Our annual dues of $10.00. So ladies, "You all Come".

Laura Regan

Each year the Santa Rosa Diocesan Council of Catholic Women asks all Women’s Catholic Organizations belonging to the SRDCCW to submit the name of a woman they consider outstanding in their particular group/club, etc., to be honored with mass and a luncheon at a church of their choice.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Madonna Sodality voted for Laura Regan to be awarded this honor for 2017. Due to the fire tragedies the luncheon, normally held in September or October, was rescheduled to January 13th, 2018.
After celebrating the Mass, the Most Reverend Bishop Robert F. Vasa presented a  congratulations certificate to each woman of the year and a blessing by him.
At the luncheon, a short bio was read about the recipients and flowers and a glass “In Appreciation” cross was presented to each woman.

Section 1: Purpose of the Organization.

The Madonna Sodality of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Windsor, CA shall bring women together in the spirit of the community and in the spirit of caring.

We may achieve this through Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Greeters, Choir, Altar Society, Religious Educators and St. Vincent de Paul membership;

by reaching out to the needs of those around us, by contributing to the educational religious training of a young man for the priesthood who is unable to pay for his own education;

creating handiwork, arts, crafts and food items to raise money of the Parish; working on the annual church fundraisers, encouraging participation in the church organization and works; promoting spiritual growth,

promoting good will in the community, aiding the elderly and the sick who may be confined to hospitals or nursing homes by visiting and bringing gifts and cards and administering communion to the ill as a Eucharistic Minister.
