Women’s Ministry invites all women of the parish to attend its “Sharing Our Journey” event from 7:00 to 10:15 am on Saturday, January 21 at Holy Family Church and Hall. The morning will include Adoration, Confession, Mass, a speaker from New Beginnings, and an opportunity to learn about the HOPE Box, as well as to sign up for Small Groups and Bible Studies. Meant to be a hopeful resource for mothers and fathers of our community to encourage them to choose life, the HOPE Box will include such items as pregnancy help resources, an invitation to host a baby shower at our church and, poignantly, an “Esther letter” from a member of our community who has faced a similar decision and yet chose life for their child and family. Those who attend this morning retreat are asked to bring the following items for the HOPE Box to the event or to the Parish Office: candle – tea light size in a holder of some sort; lotion- 2-5 oz. container; hand soap or hand sanitizer – 2-5 oz. container; and journal – 4×6 or smaller.
