There’s a new women’s organization in town, thanks to the efforts of four local ladies. Daughters of Isabella is an organization of Catholic women designed to strengthen faith, build friendships, offer talents to the parish and to help the Gardner-Edgerton communities. The group will work closely with the Knights of Columbus.
The Daughters of Isabella is one of the largest Catholic women’s organizations, with a membership of more than 60,000 women from the United States and Canada and has continued to prosper and establish bonds among Catholic women throughout the world.
Four women, seeking ways to serve the community, met with Janet Huss, the State Regent for the Daughters of Isabella, to explore the possibility of forming a circle in the Divine Mercy parish. After working hard for several months, the St. Faustina Circle 1439 of the Daughters of Isabella was chartered with 37 new members. Judy Hadle, the new Circle Regent, and the other officers were installed to lead the women into the future. The ladies are delighted that Deacon Dan Peterson agreed to be their Circle’s Chaplain.
Now the work of organizing a new circle begins: Judy Hadle has been very busy assigning committee chairman and committee members. So far, this has been easy; members want to assist her wherever she needs them. This Circle meets on the third Monday evening of the month in the Divine Mercy Parish Center in Gardner. New members are Welcome: The Order of the Daughters of Isabella is open to all women, age 16 and over, who are Catholics.
