The Altar Society has been in existence in Muskogee for over 100 years. The purpose of this ladies group is to give glory to God and promote devotion to his Blessed Mother. The Society maintains and cares for the needs of the altar, sanctuary and sacristy. They also provide a channel through which the pastor may reach all the women of the parish.
The Society provides bereavement dinners for families of anyone deceased in the parish. The Society also operates the religious articles case at St. Joseph Church. The Sunshine Committee sends out get-well
cards, thinking of you cards, and cards of condolence to members of our parish. The Altar Society meets at St. Joseph Parish Center on the 3rdMonday of the month September through May at 7:00 p.m. All ladies of the parish are considered members.
The Altar Society has two major fundraisers a year. On the first Saturday of December, we have our Cookie/Candy Sale and on the third Thursday in April we have our Quiche/Salad Luncheon. The proceeds of these fundraisers are used to purchase altar wine, host, altar cloths, candles, server robes, priest’s vestments, and many other needs of the altar or pastor.
