Does your parish women's group seem to have no reason to exist other than reading the minutes? Does it need a purpose for meeting or a project to work on to inspire the membership? Come join us for a seminar to inspire you and your group to get involved in one or all of the following areas of concern for women: Human trafficking, domestic abuse, hunger prevention, Catholic education, abortion. We invite everyone who has any position of leadership or wishes to become a leader of a group to come discover the resources and support that we have available to make your group more vital, more involved. We can provide the basic information (nuts and bolts) for starting, revitalizing and running your group. This will be an opportunity to meet with representatives from every different women's group in the Archdiocese. This networking event is supported by the Archbishop.

On the way to the Abbey, we stopped at the Cathedral in St. Joseph, Missouri,
had a tour, ate lunch on the bus and still made it on time to the Abbey.
At the Abbey we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful church and surroundings.
We also had time for an explanation of lectio divina and had the opportunity to try it.
Brother gave us a tour of the church and he explained that it was a basilica
and how it was different from a church. And that was just Saturday.
Sunday we prayed with the monks, had breakfast, went to Mass,
had lunch and then left for the Benedictine Sisters at Clyde.
At the Sisters we had a tour of the Relics Chapel and were
able to participate in Adoration of the Eucharist in the main chapel.
