Women exploring their faith lives – one Wednesday at a time.
Women’s Wisdom on Wednesdays (WWW) is a community of women who meet throughout the year at HNOJ for fellowship and learning. Our objectives are:
- Build supportive and enriching friend and neighbor relationships
- Explore what it means to be grace-filled women at any stage of life
- Share collective wisdom to better appreciate blessings and deal with challenges
- Generate a deeper appreciation for our Catholic Christian faith and traditions
In our 2019-2020 WWW program, Discipleship: The Way LOVE + the TRUTH = the LIFE, we will explore various facets of God’s agape love and his integral truth, discussing what it means to be open to receiving these great gifts. In addition, we’ll study several vital fruits of compassion - love in action – and justice – truth in action. Through this program, together we’ll learn how, as disciples, we can accept, experience, and share the kinds of love and truth that lead to earthly happiness and everlasting life.
This WWW program consists of four sets (blocks) of four consecutive meetings (10-11:30 a.m.) scheduled at intervals from September through May. You may sign up for individual blocks (for $15 each) or for all four blocks at a discount ($45) when the program first begins. To register, pick up a brochure in the Parish Office or register online at www.hnoj.org/womens-wisdom.
