Women’s Spirituality Groups provide the opportunity for women to come to a deeper understanding of themselves and of their own unique spirituality. Through readings, discussions, and prayerful reflection, participants will experience a deeper prayer life and the invitation to share their gifts in service to God’s people. Groups are comprised of twelve to fifteen women who meet once a month. This is an opportunity for women to grow spiritually, explore faith issues, and discuss how our faith sustains us in our every day lives. All are welcome! Bring a friend! A commitment to steady attendance at the monthly meetings is important for the development and continuity of the group.
What is it like then to relate to someone who is relating to you in a predominantly feminine style? . When someone relates to you from the feminine side of themselves, what you see reflected. is your own strength, your own capacity, your own uniqueness.
