Marie Rose Julie Billiart founded the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in 1804 and was canonized as St. Julie Billiart by Pope Paul VI in 1969. It was Saint Julie’s vision and hope that her sisters would go throughout the world making God’s goodness known to all people. Her focus was to deepen our relationship with God and one another through spirituality, community, and ministries.
The St. Julie Billiart Guild of SMA is an organization committed to building a positive school environment by setting an example for our children through spirituality, community service, and support of the educational programs and activities that are vital to the school's success.
The SMA Parent Guild is focused mainly on these three important goals:
- Holding a monthly meeting where parents can express their interests and concerns toward the common goal of the spiritual and educational enrichment of our children.
- Supporting fundraising events, such as the annual SMA Auction.
- Support social activities for SMA families, such as the Christmas event, Grandparent’s Day, and Candy Bar Bingo.
"It takes every member of a village to raise a child.” Nigerian Proverb
This proverb greets everyone as we enter the front doors of our wonderful school. Our guild provides an opportunity for both new and experienced parents of SMA students to meet and build this family and village together.
The guild meets approximately once a month. We hope you will join us as we continue to build the community of St. Mary of the Annunciation School.
