Girls’ Friendly Society 140th Anniversary Service

For over 140 years the Girls’ Friendly Society has been helping girls and young women to make their way in an often uncertain society. This year we celebrate 140 years of providing education and shelter for women. Although our focus has changed over the years from training to formation, our dedication to helping create a nurturing environment with a Christian emphasis has remained the same. This past spring we celebrated in style with our sisters from around the diocese representing 13 branches and ages from 5 to ??! The girls were blessed to have Bishop Coadjutor John Taylor as their celebrant and preacher. We hope you enjoy some scenes from the day at St. John’s Pro Cathedral in Los Angeles.
