Ladies of Carmel

Dear Sisters in Christ,

Welcome to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Community!

The Ladies of Carmel invite you to become a part of an amazing organization.  We are women of every age, marital status, working and retired, young mothers and widows. Our mission is to support each other and the parish, as well as the larger community.

The Ladies of Carmel is comprised of small guilds where women meet once a month from September through May. The ladies meet in members’ home, or at restaurants. Some guilds meet during the day, others in the evenings.  Our meetings give women a chance to enjoy faith and fellowship, as we work on individual guild projects or those of the organization as a whole.

Since 1956 the guilds have been able to meet many of the otherwise unfunded needs of the parish by raising money for the Communion vessels, the bell tower, the crucifix, hymnals, and the youth groups, as well as the Capital and Living Our Mission Campaigns. We support the OLMC School, Peninsula Catholic, and the Poor Clares; help with funeral receptions and numerous other projects at the Church. We also gather for fun and fellowship throughout the year at events such as our annual Fashion Show.

If you are interested in becoming a member or have any questions, please contact any guild chairlady of the local guilds shown on the Guild Page or Paula Krewinghaus, Membership Committee, at 757-593-2348 or

Yours in Christ,
The Ladies of Carmel
