If you are outside the canton Zug we cannot take your concerns.
Since 1915, our “Nothilfe” initiative (formerly mothers’ aid) has been supporting people in difficult situations in a humane and uncomplicated way. For that, neither religion nor nationality are important.
Eventhough we have a good social system in Switzerland, single people and families get into distressing situations without being at fault. We decided to counter that!
The “Nothilfe” intiative is financed by the Mother’s Day offerings of the Catholic parishes in the canton of Zug and additional valuable donations from private individuals, associations and companies.
Our initative “Nothilfe” processes requests from people seeking help all year round. Mostly it is unforeseen events such as the loss of a job, illness and other emergency situations. For example, there is no money for a dental bill, to attend a school trip, warm shoes and winter clothing, the cost of the nursery or for a continuing education course for reintegration. We are here to help people in these situations. Whether it be through offers online and in our facility, monetary donations or human interaction.

Our sewing courses are very popular. They enhance the community and give the chance to learn new skills. That is what we want to make possible for the women.
You can sew whatever your heart desires and all participants can sew whatever they feel like.
If you have any difficulties, you can always approach the course instructor Ursula Keller. She is a certified Courier dressmaker with numerous training courses.
Every three years, the participants become models and present their selfmade clothes in a fashion show. Donations to this event are fully integrated in the Weihnachtsbriefkasten budget. Take part!

Christmas is the time of rest and contemplation. Family and friends come together, people take care of each other. Unfortunately, however, not everyone can spend the holidays this carefree.
In Zug, there are people living at the minimum income level and families who cannot afford the most basic necessities. In 1996, we founded the Weihnachtsbriefkasten (Christmas Mailbox) to bring joy to those seeking help. Thanks to loyal donors, we help about 650 neighbors each year with living, therapy and medical expenses. We also fulfill the dreams of children.
The Rotary-Club-Zug-Zugersee yearly finances us ca. 5 tons of groceries. Those are wrapped up festively and personally delivered to around 170 addresses.
The volunteer contact women also help. They offer talks, visits and tips and thus brighten up the festive season.
To us it is important that our range of further education is large and very diverse. The training courses are intended to strengthen the competence and motivation of the women in their voluntary work.
Even if the -K- in our name does not mean Katholisch (catholic) anymore and instead Kantonal (cantonal), our Christian beliefs are still an underlying foundation.
Thus we enable active contacts to other local associations and lithurgy groups. Together we talk about spiritual topics as to represent our religious spirit.
For the liturgy groups we organize regular meetings in the Katechetischen Arbeitsstelle des Dekanats Zug (KAZ) for an exchange about religious and current questions.
Information is an important part of our lives and it is one of our most important values. Knowledge enables us to recognize problems and change the world.
Through competent speakers, we want to enable you to experience diverse lectures. Some of them are more practical, with topics such as health and sports. But there are also creative and cultural topics.
November meetings are available to all!
What‘s a life without music? The nostalgia choir revives old songs and a variety of feelings.
With melodies of the old Vienna time, well-known operettas, and evergreens of the 1920-50s, the choir ladies have a wide repertoire.
There are songs like: „Tulpen aus Amsterdam“, „S‘ Träumli“ or „In einer kleinen“ and many more!
Dressed in elegant gowns made of frills, with little hats and bags from that era, the audience will experience a trip back to the „Belle Epoque“.
