Ministry of Mothers: Mondays, starting October 24 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

No matter where you are in your journey as a mother and a Catholic woman, we know there are plenty of joys and struggles along the way. This ministry is for mothers with children ages 0-18, bonded by their vocation and solidified by their faith. Our goal is to connect young mothers to form lasting friendships and encourage growth in their relationship with God. We will discuss a variety of topics on a mother's heart, but this year will focus on a weekly bible study by Walking with Purpose called Opening Your Heart.  The study explores the core questions that we need to wrestle with if we want to experience all that God has for us. 

  • How do I get my priorities in order? 
  • I’ve been going through the motions in my spiritual life, how does it relate to my day-to-day life? 
  • How do I get to know Christ in a personal way?

The group also plans to hold a few spouse and family fun activities throughout the year.   

Starting on October 24, we will meet Monday nights at 6:30 pm for 60-90 minutes in Rooms 101-103 and go through the school year. Childcare is available. Please reach out to [email protected] if interested in joining. There is no cost to join, but if you are able to help offset the book cost for the church that would be appreciated. It’s the MORE you’ve been longing for!
