The All Souls Women's Association has been organizing monthly programs since 1912.
The Women's Association
The Women's Association of All Souls Church began in 1912 and was formed to be a gathering place for women of Christian beliefs. Monthly programs are tailored to the interests of the membership. Recent visitors included an Army National Guard helicopter pilot who served two tours of duty in Iraq and forged a good relationship with the men who flew with her. Hannah Whalen of the Maine Community Foundation spoke of the great work the foundation is doing around the state of Maine. Jack Russell spoke of the upcoming Centennial Celebration of Acadia national Park in 2016.
The meetings are on the first Tuesday of the months of October, November, December, March, April, and May. Meetings convene at 11:30 A.M. Women bring their own bag lunch (usually sandwiches) with a dessert and hot tea provided. The members support the Bangor Homeless Shelter with donations of coffee each month. In the spring, Church World Service kits are assembled and donated. These kits either address school needs, baby needs or hygiene needs. Additionally, the Association makes an annual gift of funding available to the Assist-JC program. The Women's Association is open to all women of All Souls Church and their friends.
The men of All Souls are cordially invited to attend the special presentations provided by community members. Contact the church office for a schedule.
