St Martha’s Circle is an organization of women who pray together, provide friendship to each other and help the church and community. St Martha’s operates the gift shop you see as you enter the church providing religious articles for the community. The Circle also has an annual bake sale. Monies received from our projects go to provide scholarships for St. Anne students and money for seminarians at the Oratory. We have donated to local charities so they may carry on their needed work. Our monies have also been used for several projects needed by the church. Mary’s Prayer Grotto, vestments for the priests, and choir robes only a few examples.
Yearly projects include fruit baskets for shut-ins at Thanksgiving time, turkey for the Thanksgiving dinner at St Anne’s and the Christmas dinner at St Mary’s . Our gift basket for St. Vincent DePaul for the fall festival is always a big hit.
St Martha’s meetings on the 2nd Saturday of the month at 9:00am from September to May. Our meetings consist of prayer, bible reading, saint of the day, discussion and business meeting. We currently are 38 members strong but are always welcoming others. Contact Mary Lou Fellows at 803-980-6271 or Dottie Cunningham at 803-548-5981 for information.
