Women of Saint Michael (WOSM)
Welcome to the Women of Saint Michael (WOSM). All women who are members of Saint Michael are automatically members of WOSM. Our theme for the 2023–2024 programming year is "Art and Spirituality." As President of the WOSM, Adele Broughton invites us to take a minute to stop, look, and appreciate the beautiful, artistic world in which we live.
The 2023–2024 programming year features a four part speaker series on topics including plans for our Parish, visual and decorative arts, literature, and the role faith plays in the creation of art. This year's line-up promises to be engaging and enlightening as we contemplate our interactions with Art and how Art can inspire Spirituality.
Please watch for all our event information in the Archangel, Annual Newsletter, or Sunday News, or call 214-363-5471 and ask for WOSM President, Adele Broughton, for more information. Lastly, please join us for the speaker series and our other events as we have fun while doing good work!
The St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange, a gift shop in Highland Park Village, is the outreach fundraising project of the Women of Saint Michael. Please visit our newly redone location at 5 Highland Park Village for all your gifting and wrapping needs!
