Catholic Family Fraternal of Texas (CFFT) – KJZT, is a Fraternal Benefit Society founded in 1894 by Czech Catholic women. The original organizers of “Katolicka Jednota Zen Texaskych” (KJZT) sought new members only from their female, Czech, Catholic neighbors living in Yoakum, Hallettsville and surrounding communities in South Central Texas. Today, more than a century after its founding, KJZT offers membership to all Texans irrespective of gender or ethnic background. To find out more about the KJZT, go to the website kjzt.org.
The West Society # 11 (St. Ludmila) was organized on May 4, 1904. We currently have over 500 members in our society. We collect food and maintain the food pantry for our parish. We offer scholarships to all junior members. We meet the second Sunday of the month after the 7:30 a.m. Mass at the Parish Center. For any information on our society call any of our officers.
