Meets second Wednesdays

The Catholic Professional Women's Club was organized in February, 1910, for the purpose of looking after the comfort and welfare of the Catholic girls enrolled in the San Francisco Normal School. With this end in view, it sponsored the organization of the Siena Club, which is composed
entirely of girls attending the Normal School. This club has since developed its own Alumnae organization, the Siena Alumnae, which has largely relieved the older club of the responsibility of the Siena Club.

The Catholic Professional Women's Club then took up the Americanization work in the North Beach section by the establishment of a class to teach English to foreign mothers. This class was started in April, 1917, and has been in session every school day since from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. It is in charge of Miss Adele ZABALDANO, and has an enrollment of fifty-four. During the past year it has been necessary to add a kindergarten teacher to care for the little ones who accompany their mothers.

The club conducts a Bible section under the direction of Rev. Father FOOTE, S. J., and a literary section under the direction of Monsignor RAMM. Besides this specific work, the club gives its support to numerous movements for social and civic betterment, endeavoring to attain the highest ideals of the Roman Catholic faith.

Meetings are held on the second Wednesdays of every calendar month from September to June, at 4:00 p.m., while the Board of Directors meets similarly on the fourth Wednesdays. All meetings are held in Junipero Serra Hall, Young Men's Institute Building, 50 Oak Street.
