Discipleship: A Woman for All Seasons
Women’s Wisdom on Wednesdays (WWW) is a community of women who meet throughout the year at HNOJ for fellowship and learning. Some of 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 2018-2019 WWW program - Discipleship: A Woman for All Seasons – we will focus on summer, autumn, winter, and spring from a spiritual viewpoint, examining the gifts and challenges of each as an earthly season and as a stage of life. We’ll also look at sixteen female saints and holy women who illustrate various themes touched on in our seasonal discussions. Through this study, we hope to grow together in holiness and truly become even more faith-filled women for all seasons.
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.
