Women of Grace®members who participated in a prayerful protest to prevent a satanic display from being erected in a public park in Florida are overjoyed to report that the display will NOT be erected this year!
When 45-year-old Deanna Williston of Sykesville, Maryland completed her Master’s degree in Education this year, this former home-schooling mom wondered “What next?” But then she heard about the Benedicta Leadership Institute’s new Catholic Women’s Leadership program at Holy Apostles College and Seminary and suddenly it all clicked – “This is it for me!”
Women of Grace®, a pioneer in Catholic Women’s Leadership education, has entered into a partnership with historic Holy Apostles College & Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut which will now offer certification, undergraduate and graduate credit hours in Catholic Women’s Leadership in an online format.
This year’s Women of Grace® Retreat, which will be held from July 17-19 on the historic 120-acre campus of Orchard Lake Schools in Orchard Lake, Michigan, is the ideal setting for an encounter with the Architect of your life.
Entitled, “My Grace is Sufficient for You: Woman and God’s Divine Plan,” this retreat will feature Johnnette Benkovic, Fr. Philip Scott, FJ and Dr. Monica Miller in an intensive three-day immersion in what it means to be a daughter of God, and how to live out that call in this our day and time. These restful grounds, which were so dear to the heart of St. John Paul II, are the perfect place to escape the world and acquire the spiritual and emotional nourishment you need in order to empower you to engage in the unique cultural battles of our time.
“The Women of Grace Retreat always awakens what has been hiding inside of me,” says Mary Dillenback of Fishers Landing, New York. “I leave with renewed courage and joy – grateful to know I am a daughter of the Most High God and that much closer to who God needs me to be!” The retreat will be preceded by the Benedicta Leadership Institute for Women on July 16 – 17. Johnnette and Dr. Miller will discuss, “The Authority of Woman: Her Influence, Effect, and Power.”
I want to personally invite you to join me, Fr. Philip Scott, FJ and Dr. Peggy Hartshorn, President of Heartbeat International for our upcoming 7th Annual Women of Grace Retreat and Benedicta Leadership Institute. It is certain to be a time of grace and healing in which Our Lord will refresh you with His spirit and renew your zeal for the mission to which He has entrusted you. Here’s a preview of what you will experience. Please pray about coming and if you feel prompted, give us a call or register online today.
Your sister in Christ,
