Ministry of Moms Sharing (MOMS): Many women long for motherhood and yet, when it arrives, find the task overwhelming and sometimes empty of value and worth. In Grace Within: A Personal Journal, the ancient Catholic spiritual practice of finding the sacred in the ordinary answers the longing mothers have to know that these daily tasks matter and that they matter in a divine way.
In the eight-week exploration of the topics in this book, many women have discovered that beneath the veils of the mundane lies a vast gold mine of purpose and value. The vocation of motherhood draws us closer to Christ’s call to love and the culmination of our Baptismal calling. Mothers of all stages in their mothering are invited to join the 33rd group. Orientation is June 5, 2017.
St. Catherine's has hosted 32 groups of MOMS. Groups meet on Monday evenings in the summer for the initial 8 weeks. Women in every stage of their career actualization, full-time, part-time and stay-at-home, find common ground in the topics explored in MOMS. After the 8 week study, many women can and do continue to meet in various formats and frequently remain good friends. Childcare is available. Infants are welcome at the meetings.
