Women’s Group

“To know, to love, and to serve God in this life

so we can be happy with Him in Heaven.”

Baltimore Catechism

The mission of The Women’s Group is the spiritual formation of women by fostering in them a greater desire to know, love, and serve God and His Church.  As a community of women rooted in our Catholic faith, we offer opportunities to deepen our relationship with God, develop relationships with other women in order to support our spiritual growth, and manifest our love for God by serving His people.

 

Women’s Night of Reflection

WNR button

Our monthly Women’s Night of Reflection offers all women the opportunity to establish a stronger relationship with Christ through an evening of prayer, fellowship, and reflection. The evening begins with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and a meditation talk given by a priest, followed by silent prayer and Adoration. The Sacrament of Confession is offered throughout the evening, and Prayers of Healing may be offered during Adoration.  The night concludes with Benediction.
