Who We Are

We are a community of women that look to the Church as the center of their lives and who actively seek to share the joys of their faith with others by participation in the life and mission of their parish.

We support women in their journey to sainthood through providing opportunities for growth in prayer, fellowship, service, and faith formation/education. We do this through core teams — groups of neighboring parishes scattered throughout the diocese. Core teams gather to plan support the women's minsitry efforts in their area and plan events and opportunities for prayer, fellowship, service and faith formation.

It's easy to join our ministry efforts. All you have to do is sign up to receive our monthly newsletter and participate in our opportunites to gather when you can. Also check in to our service page for other ways you can get involved!
