Who We Are

Our Purpose

Our purpose is fourfold:

  • To promote greater interest in Martin Luther College.
  • To promote Christian fellowship among women of WELS and those in Synodical fellowship
  • To give financial support to MLC by supplying funds for needed projects which are not included in the Synod budget.
  • To support MLC and its students through prayer
