Meets the 1st, 3rd and 4th Wednesday of the month after the 6pm Mass in front of the Blessed Virgin Mary side of the church.
Spiritual Motherhood is a supernatural way for women to care for souls, especially priests. It is a type of maternity that nurtures Divine Life in others by doing Gods Will centered on the Holy Eucharist, faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and it focuses on Authentic Marian Femininity and Maternity.
“If the desired renewal of the Church depends for the most part on its priests, then it will also depend to a larger degree on the families and in particular women and mothers” (Pope St. John Paul II, May 4, 1987).
Who can become a Spiritual Mother?
Stop by the kiosk and pick up a CD to listen to as you travel or a book to read on vacation! Terry Barber, founder of St Joseph Communication, has written a practical guide that takes the pain and uncertainty out of sharing one's faith, titled: How to Share Your Faith with Anyone - A Practical Manual for Catholic Evangelization. We offer the talk, A Scriptural Walk Through The Mass, by Dr Edward Sri. For children, the “Truth to Inspire Series” has produced another captivating dramatization in St. Teresa of Avila. There are many topics to choose from that will help us know, live and share our rich Catholic faith. MOST SACRED HEART OF JESUS, have mercy of us!
