The Women’s Guild was organized in the 1930s to promote the spiritual and social life of the parish and to respond to requests from the pastor. This remains its main purpose. The Guild, open to all women of the parish, also participates in charitable activities in Trumansburg, in Tompkins County and its surrounding area, as well as in charities throughout the world.
