Women's Ministry

About us

Our ministry provides an environment to seek Christ and enter into relationship with the Holy Trinity through faith formation, retreats, studies, and social events amongst a community of women eager to support each other through fellowship and service.

MAIN PURPOSE:

  • To provide an environment for women at St. Michael Catholic Community to grow deeper in faith through education and faith sharing, where women are seen, known, and loved by God and our fellow parishioners.
  • To help women come to know that their own story has a deeper purpose and meaning not only for themselves, but to inspire and evangelize others.
  • To grow in the mission of our parish, that is to “warm hearts and heal wounds.”
  • To share the tools we need in order to live our faith in the larger community and share the Good News of Jesus Christ with confidence.

Who can join?

All women are welcome, whether you are a parishioner or not. Come one, come all! To keep updated with all our events and faith formation programs, sign up to our Flocknote email group using the form below:

Women’s Ministry Activities

Throughout the year, the WM has various activities which includes:

FAITH FORMATION STUDIES

Studies are chosen to encourage us to go deeper in faith, learn how to evangelize, develop a deeper prayer life, and how to become missionary disciples, among many other thought provoking themes.

Studies are held weekly every Thursday, with morning sessions from 9:30 a.m. to noon and evening sessions from 7 to 9 p.m. There are 3-4 studies presented each year.

Coffee Connections

Coffee Connections is a fun, safe, and faith-based atmosphere to share a coffee and get to know each other by building community in a smaller, more intimate setting. If you’d like to host a Coffee Connections, please send a note to Claudia at womensministry@saintmichael.ca.

Women’s Life Stories

This is an opportunity for women to share their faith testimonies and inspire others through their lived experiences. If you’d like to share during one of these sessions, please email us at womensministry@saintmichael.ca.

Women’s Retreats

Prayer, song, and fellowship together on some weeknights from 7 to 9 p.m. Often, we have an inspirational speaker and/or testimonial, sharing our faith story.

Lectio: Prayer

Our Lord teaches that prayer is a relationship and a vital necessity. And yet, many of us have difficulty committing to daily prayer. Follow Jesus into the desert this Lent and discover intimacy with God in this 6-week video-based study with Dr. Tim Gray.

When: Jan. 16 to Feb. 20, 2020 during the schedule mentioned above.
