The women of the Bible have much in common with our own trials, burdens and joys, and with our call to steadfast faith in God, even in difficult times. This retreat will explore the lives of several faith-filled women in Scripture and show how they can serve as inspiring role models for Catholic women today. In looking at their lives, we will discover what Scripture reveals about the unique dignity of women and their pivotal role in God’s plan of salvation.
