Women's Wisdom on Wednesdays

Discipleship: Jesus, Who Are You?

Now registering for block IV, beginning April 11th.  Go to https://hnoj.weshareonline.org/WomensWisdom to register.

Women’s Wisdom on Wednesdays (WWW) is a community of women who meet throughout the year in the Emmaus or Fireside Rooms at HNOJ for fellowship and learning. Some of our objectives are to:


  • 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.

Our primary objective is to explore the characteristics of discipleship.  As we look as these characteristics our focus is to discern how to handle all things in ways that keep us close to God so that we can witness to others at all times in word and action.

In our 2017-2018 WWW program - Discipleship: Jesus, Who Are You? –  we will seek to know Jesus better by focusing upon some of his key names and titles, selected from among the immense number attributed to him, both in Scripture and in other sources. Our hope is that through shared study, discussion and prayer related to these names and titles, we will grow in understanding of Jesus and who he is, as both man and God, to ourselves and to the world. Then maybe we’ll be able to answer him if he ever asks us, “And who do you say that I am?”

The 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 discounted rate of $45 right now at the beginning of the year’s program. Women can choose to join WWW at any time throughout the year and participate in any or all blocks desired.

We invite women of the parish to come together and build community through this unique experience.
