Lasance’s instruction to young maidens. We have highly encouraged all RMGS members to obtain their own copy of Fr. Lansance’s guide.
  • Little Women’s Hospitality Program – We’ve used this manual as an supplemental resource to help us foster the original mission set forth by the RMGS founder - to equip the the girls with domestic skills for their vocation.
  • Blogs – supplemental resource. I have scoured numerous blogs that offer free tutorials and wonderful reflections on the desired virtues.
  • Sewing with St. Anne: A Sewing Book for Catholic Girls – supplemental resource
  • Tea and Cake with the Saints: A Catholic Young Lady's Introduction to Hospitality and the Home Arts – supplemental resource

  2. RMGS was formed at my parish by a mother, for girls ages 9-13.The younger girls at my parish attend Little Flowers and the older girls attend Sodality.
    RMGS is not a set program with a model. She laid the foundation of domestic skills and apostolate to the pregnancy resource center. The group has looked different over the season, dependent on the season of the mothers helping. It has always been in union with the Holy Mass. RMGS is overseen by a Spiritual Dir/Priest.

    I kept the original mother's model and added some Little Women's Hospitality and Little Flowers type of enrichment. I create/collect my own handouts for all selected skill sets. It's what worked best for my gifts and 42 girls. I'm sure I would have done it differently if there were only a handful of girls.

    Please let me know if there is any other info that I can offer to help you with your group.

    ad Jesum per Mariam,
    Lena

    OUR LADY OF THE MYSTICAL ROSE, PRAY FOR US!
