Faith Opportunities for Women

“The Church is constantly enriched by the witness of the many women who fulfill their vocation to holiness. Holy women are an incarnation of the feminine ideal; they are also a model for all Christians, a model of the ‘sequela Christi,’ an example of how the Bride must respond with love to the love of the Bridegroom.” (Mulieris Dignitatem (On the Dignity and Vocation of Women), #27)

How can Catholic women fulfill their ‘vocation to holiness’?

A woman who seeks to grow in holiness will often discover many callings during the seasons of her life. She may be single, married, widowed, or in religious life. She may work full-time outside the home or be a ‘domestic engineer.’ She may be both a wife and/or mother. Often, she may feel challenged by the many responsibilities in these roles or callings.

Women’s fellowship groups at St. Paul can nourish the deep spiritual and social needs of women, so that they can continue to be a witness of Christ to all those they serve and encounter.

Who Does He Say You Are?

Coming Summer 2018 (morning and evening sessions available)!

In Who Does He Say You Are?, Catholic missionary and speaker Colleen Mitchell captures the confessions of twelve more women from the Gospels, and shows how their stories answer this crucial question of identity: “Who does he say you are?” Holding up Mary as the ultimate example of intimate, transforming union, Mitchell weaves together moving anecdotes of her own search for identity as a Catholic woman along with twelve accounts of women in Scripture that are at once fresh yet familiar. In so doing, Mitchell connects in a compelling and very personal way with the Scriptures, inspiring readers to “take up and read” in order to discover the answer to this all-important question for themselves.
