ANTIOCHIAN WOMEN'S GUILD
The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America was founded in 1973 through the Vision of His Eminence Metropolitan Philip (Saliba) of Thrice-Blessed Memory. Today, it is an organization of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese and is led by His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph. Our purpose is to develop among the women a spirit of Christian leadership, awareness, and commitment; to foster a genuine expression of love and service through works of charity; and to install a sense of fellowship and a deeper understanding of our Holy Orthodox Faith. We are a “Sisterhood Serving Christ Through Serving Others.”
The St. Elijah Women’s Guild has about one function per month according to Michelle Morrow, board liaison for the group. Activities kick off in the fall and in addition to social events they participate in fundraising and serve the church in many other capacities. Announcements for activities can be found in the Church bulletin and you can find out more on the function of the organization at www.antiochian.org/women.
We welcome women from the ages of 19 to 99, and urge you to join us in our ministry, remembering that EVERY woman in the Antiochian Archdiocese is an “Antiochian Woman”!
