Join us for a panel discussion with Catholic women in different phases of life. We’ll talk about the challenges we face as Catholic women in today’s culture, how to survive in secular society without compromising your Christian identity, and making your faith a priority with a busy lifestyle.

For further reading, our book recommendation is "The Authentic Catholic Woman" by Genevieve Kineke. The book discusses what it means to be a woman today, and asks women to consider the Church, the Bride of Christ, as the model for authentic Catholic womanhood. “The Church,” she says, “has made it clear that if we women can discover the richness of our vocation, then we will have an impact that we never imagined. If we are faithful to our femininity, we can do what God asks of us and rebuild a civilization of love and life.”

As always, we’ll have free babysitting and dinner for kids, and drinks and appetizers for women!
