Leave with practical tools like your own prayer journal and daily prayer cards. The retreat will end with Fr. Muir hearing confessions from any interested participants.

The MOMS Ministry Brings You the Women of Grace Study Series
Register now for this eight-week program that begins Oct. 1
The MOMS Ministry is happy to present for the first time at St. Thomas Aquinas an eight-week Women of Grace Study Series beginning Thursday, October 1 and ending on November 19. Sessions will take place on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm in the St. Avila Room. The study series is open to all women of the parish. Here’s what Bishop Olmsted had to say about this exciting study series:
“This study program brings together Sacred Scripture, the Catechism, other formal Church documents and the wisdom that is found in the lives and writings of many women saints and offers women the opportunity to grow in their knowledge and appreciation of topics which include: the call and gift of women, prayer, the sacramental life and Marian spirituality.”
– Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Nov. 2014
Space is limited to 10 women, so reserve your spot right away. The cost for each participant is $50 which covers the costs of your study guide, book and any other group materials.
If you’re interested in this study series, RSVP to our Women of Grace Study Series coordinator,
