What is the Miraculous Medal Sodality?
The Miraculous Medal Sodality is the women’s organization of St Anthony/All Saints Parish. It was established in 1942 by a group of lady friends to honor Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and to care for the church.
Today the Sodality is still an integral part of St. Anthony/All Saints Parish. Our purpose is:
- To support the Parish mission and goals.
- To promote Christian fellowship and spiritual growths for the women of the Parish.
- To work for the betterment of St Anthony/All Saints Parish.
- To provide spiritual, social and financial support to the Parish through projects requested by the Pastor and the members.
Who belongs to the Miraculous Medal Sodality?
We are a group of women who range in age from 18 to 90+ years young (There is no age mininum or maximum). Miraculous Medal is a group of women that are joined together in faith for friendship and service to the church.
