Society of Our Lady of Guadalupe
The Society of Our Lady of Guadalupe membership program welcomes individuals and families who want to make a difference today by supporting the areas that need the most strengthening according to Bishop Kevin Vann as defined in the Diocesan strategic plan. Prayerful support ensures our Catholic community will continue to be an effective, growing, dynamic force in our diocese and our community today, tomorrow and forever.
When becoming a member of the Society of Our Lady of Guadalupe, your meaningful contribution will be granted on an annual basis, honoring donor intent, in support of the greatest need within the following pillars: Evangelization & Faith Formation; Stewardship; Clergy Formation; Catholic Education; and Christ Cathedral and Campus.
While meaningful support at any level is greatly appreciated, members at the Blue Mantle and above receive special recognition, insider updates and exclusive invitations to events.
