The Ladies Auxiliary hosts our Friend and Fund-raising events to raise funds for local agencies and charities of our choice. We have our very successful Chili Supper Sunday in January, Pancakes for Dinner in November and our favorite Bunch for Bunco in April. These events are open to the public. Our group is often asked to assist with parish-wide events as well.
We participate in some of the Knights' programs--notable the M. R. (Tootsie Roll) drive, (during which we usually raise more money than most councils in Missouri) for mentally and physically challenged persons in our area and the state of Missouri, the Contest of Concern, helps fund the Special Olympics, and the Roses for Life program.
We participate jointly with the Knights at an Installation of Officers in the summer, which is followed by a dinner, and a yearly Christmas dinner at which time they donate their Tootsie Roll funds to the local agencies benefiting the disabled.
Membership is open to wives, daughters, or widows of Knights over the age of 18, and all female members of religious orders.
