  • Tuesdays, June 4-July 30, 2024

What would it be like to get to know the women of the Bible as real, living figures whose lives can challenge our own? What can we learn from their faith journeys? What would it be like to pray alongside them? Two lively spiritual directors take us into the world of the women of the Bible.

Provoked by the desperation of the Canaanite woman, empowered by Mary's fiat, affirmed by the loyalty of Mary Magdalene, and challenged by Ruth's fidelity, Doucet and Hebert enter into a new sisterhood with these active and contemplative holy women who emerge out of history. All of the stories link these holy women from the past with contemporary women, all of them longing after God's own heart.

Participants are asked to bring a Bible each week.

Signup will be May 18-19 in the welcome area of church after Mass. Payment of $20 is due at signup. Books will be ordered and distributed prior to the first session.
