Donations Needed: Each year we ask for donations from the Holy Ghost community for our very popular multi-item raffle baskets, center stage raffles and drinks for the cafe. Please consider donating an item or cash/gift cards to cover the purchase of an item on our wish list. Donations may be brought to the October Mothers’ Guild general meeting or contact us for pick up arrangements. For more details and the complete wish list, please click here.
Volunteers Needed: HGP parent/guardian volunteers will be needed the weekend of the craft show to help with all aspects of the event, please sign up here!

Mothers' Guild Ambassador Program is Back
Last year, the Mothers’ Guild introduced its’ new ambassador program. We are pleased to once again offer this new and important program to the HGP community.
Ambassadors will be to mentor new mothers through their first year at HGP by answering questions, no matter how specific or general, regarding Mothers’ Guild events, functions, and volunteer opportunities. Throughout the year they will also share news of important events and/or simply check in with their families to be sure they are acclimating well.
If you wish to volunteer to be an ambassador, or would like to have an ambassador mentor you in your first year, please fill in the attached form.
For more information about the program, please contact your sophomore reps.
