80 Years of Service to Our Church

In September 1928, the Women's Guild, originally called the Ladies' Aid Society, was established at St. Leon Armenian Church. On September 28, 2008 St. Leon Women’s Guild members, clergy, family and friends came together to celebrate the Guild’s 80th year of continued service.  Click here to read a wonderful memoir of the Women’s Guild lovingly prepared by Ruth Bedevian for the 80th Anniversary celebration.

As members, we continue to work in the loving spirit of the women who walked before us. We welcome you to join us!   Click here for application: Women's Guild Application and Bio
