Altar & Rosary Society

The Altar & Rosary Society of St. Joseph Church is an organization of parish women with the following purposes:

  1. To unite women of all ages of the parish community in a bond of sisterly support and concern to build up the Body of Christ.
  2. To join in prayer and devotion under the patronage of Our Blessed Lady especially through devotion to the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
  3. To provide an opportunity for worship, fellowship and service within the parish and the Gowanda area community.

The proceeds of all fundraising, other than general running expenses, will be expended only for the needs of the Church and Sanctuary. (Hosts, wine, candles, vestments. etc.)

The annual dues of $5.00 entitles you to membership in the St. Joseph Church Altar and Rosary Society. You are not obligated to attend the monthly meetings but are invited to join us if your schedule permits. Dues can be paid by returning the envelope in the collection basket or at the rectory.

For more information, please contact the rectory at 532-5100.
