This week Bernie shares about a women’s program which encourages the growth of Catholic Christian communities. It just might be what you’ve been looking for….
Are you seeking christian fellowship, opportunities to grow in your understanding of what is true and essential in being a Catholic Christian woman? A woman who is alive, aware, and compassionate?
If you are, then I invite you to experience Theresians. A global, non-profit, ministry of women of faith, who meet in small affirming Christian communities to pray, to be enlightened and challenged, to support and strengthen each other in one’s own lifestyle, and one’s own way of reaching out with Gospel values.
Theresian communities are sacred spaces where Christian women can give one another courage to meet the ups and downs of everyday life. Friendships are deepened, values are shared, and fresh insights on God’s Presence in the mundane are gained. By following the example of the missionary heart of our patroness, St. Therese of Lisieux, we seek to live according to these Gospel values: Spirituality, Vocation, Community, Education, and Ministry.
Theresian communities gather each month, in the daytime or evening, for shared prayer, creative programs or activities, and a meal or refreshments. Theresians give committed support by prayerfully nurturing, affirming and empowering one another to become the woman God intends them to be. I’m forever grateful for my Theresian sisters, and the journey we are on together. If interested in learning more check us out at www.theresians.org.
St. Therese, we need your help and example to communicate with God, as you communicated with God. To enlighten ourselves, as you enlightened yourself. To live our Christian vocations, as you lived your Christian vocation. To love in community, as you loved in community. To minister to people, as you ministered to people. We ask these favors through Jesus, The Lord ~Amen
