The sorority was formed in 2008 when an Advisory Board Member in California felt concerned for graduates as they left the confines and protection of the Home to return to the outside world.
Alpha Omega’s goal is to help the girls continue to “abide in Christ.” When a lady completes or graduates from the Walter Hoving program, she is automatically a member of Alpha Omega.
The members voted to be a service and mentoring sorority. We meet four times a year. Each meeting includes a devotional given by the founder, business is discussed and voting takes place on measures as needed. Yearly we have an outing together and perform a service project in the local community. Our mentoring program will consist of Alpha Omega members mentoring Walter Hoving Home ladies in their seventh month of residency.
Each meeting we ask for prayer requests that are then prayed for by our Alpha Omega Prayer Warriors Committee as well as the Hoving Advisory Board members. We are connected through an e-mail system for concerns and fellowship one with another. All new members are installed at various meetings as needed in a special installation, and are given a lovely pin to wear.
Our colors are purple for Christ’s royalty and white for His purity.
Our pin is similar to sororities that use letters from the Greek alphabet, and is five-sided for . . .
Alpha — “the beginning” — is in purple and means the member’s life began again, new, in Christ; and Omega — “the end” — is in white and means that their relationship with Christ is eternal. Elsie Benton, Joyce Racine, Michele Boghossian (the founder) and Jo Westervelt, the current Pasadena Advisory Board Chairperson, were all made honorary life members of Alpha Omega. Elsie, as well as the current President of Alpha Omega, and the founder’s pins have an amethyst and diamond.
Alpha Omega members are encouraged to attend Hoving events, support Hoving activities, pray for the residents, and wear their pins at these and our own events.
