January 28 Women’s Retreat: 12pm-4pm

The Catholic Woman through the Ages!
with Dr. Joan Kelly, Professor of Catholic Studies, SHU

Dr. Joan Kelly will explore women in the history of the church starting with the New Testament up through more contemporary times. We will ponder the women who remained faithful to Jesus at the foot of the Cross as well as women like Elizabeth Anne Seton and Katharine Drexel in more modern times.

In our own country the vast network of Catholic Schools and Hospitals throughout the nation are a huge testament to the profound impact and role of women in the church through the ages.

Date: Saturday, January 28: 12pm-4pm
Registration Fee: $20/person; lunch will be served.

Who Are The Catholic Daughters?

The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas. They donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive “to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.”

The CDA was formed over 100 years ago and today numbers 75,000 members in 1,250 courts (local chapters) in 45 states across the country, and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. Catholic Daughter women enjoy each other’s company at meetings and work hard for their parishes and communities. Deeply spiritual, together they share faith, love of God and a distinctly feminine spirituality alluded to by Pope John Paul II when he spoke of the necessity of “feminine genius” in today’s world. The program includes concerns of today’s church and society as well as issues that affect the well-being of women and children.
