The club meets on the first Thursday of each month in Barry Hall.  The business meeting at 11:00 a.m. is preceded by the recitation of the rosary in Parish Hall at 10:30 a.m.  Volunteer hostesses then serve lunch at Noon.  Three times a year it is a pot luck lunch (February, May, and December).  Speakers and entertainers are often engaged at the monthly meetings.

On the first Sunday of the month the women attend Mass as a group.  Two members take up the Eucharistic gifts.  During the year, the ladies prepare and serve luncheons at the funeral receptions for Women's Club Members and their families.  Many of the members are Eucharistic Ministers.

Serve activities include assistance with upkeep of church, flowers, and sacristan responsibilities.  Volunteers work at the La Mesa Thrift Shop each Friday and through the month of April.  Club members play an important part in the upkeep of the altar, with volunteers cleaning and helping those who decorate the altar, caring for the plants, changing the holy water and caring for the altar cloths.

Through fundraising, Women's Club members not only help the parish, but the community.  Yearly donations are made to various groups such as the Parish Food Bank, Father Barry Fund, Father Sproul Fund, Catholic Worker, Religious Education, Father Joe's Village, Meals on Wheels, Noah Homes, and church/hall improvements.

Events include bus trips to local areas, Laughlin, and Las Vegas.
