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 2022-2023 WWW program, Discipleship: To Life, To Life, L'Chaim!, we will explore what it means to be "seamlessly" pro-life; that is, to truly reverence the precious gift of life for all people from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death. Through this program, we will learn how we as disciples can advocate for and support new life, honor and dignify those we consider strangers, extend mercy to those we consider enemies and sustain the aged and the suffering until they die.
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 (at $15 each) or for all four blocks at a discount ($45) when the program first begins.
