Back by popular demand, the Women of Grace® apostolate is joining hands with popular Retreat Facilitator Carol Marquardt to offer women a powerful weekend of healing and revitalization on January 19-20, 2019 in Tampa/Oldsmar, Florida.

Catholic women have a lot on their plate. Besides the home, kids, spouse, job, and finances – all of which must be juggled in an increasingly godless world – where do we go for the friendship and support we need? Maybe a Morning of Grace is what you’re looking for!
Women of Grace®, the nation’s leading Catholic women’s apostolate, is hosting its first one-day Young Women of Grace® retreat for teen girls ages 13+. This fun-filled day is designed to help girls discover their feminine genius and learn how to use it to not just survive in this toxic culture, but to thrive in spite of it!
Women of Grace® is inviting you to participate in a very special event that will be taking place this Sunday, May 6, in the home diocese of our apostolate – the Diocese of St. Petersburg – when Bishop Gregory Parkes will consecrate the diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
