Our Lady of Pompeii Altar Guild
The Altar Guild of Our Lady of Pompeii is an organization responsible for cleaning the church every week and decorating it for Christmas, Easter and Holy Thursday, as well as purchasing items for the altar as needed. Membership totals 32 women approximately ten of whom are responsible for the cleaning and upkeep of the church. The others are members of long standing, who help us with the decorating and the collection of Christmas donations to the Abbott House and the Elmsford & Yonkers animal shelters. They also help with our two annual fundraisers- a cake sale held each May and a 50/50 raffle held every Spring. The proceeds are used to purchase what is needed for the church as well as make a semi-annual donation to Our Lady of Ephesus Convent in Gower, Mo., where one of our former parishioners is a member of that religious community.
