Projects sponsored by the Altar Society during the year are: Rummage Sale in July, a Thanksgiving/Christmas Bazaar and Raffle in November, Mother's Day Bouquets and May Crowning of the Blessed Mother, and Cookie Sales in December and February.

The Altar Society takes care of the linens and flowers in the Church. The ladies put on a funeral luncheon for the family of a deceased parishioner. The Altar Society recently opened a religious item store. Items are available for sale before and after all Masses.
