Education

 

 

Our Vision

A community of women supporting each other in Christ-centered ministries throughout the Diocese of Chicago.

Our Mission

We seek to support all women in our parishes without restriction by creating a greater connection between us through our faith and sisterhood with programs of education and service. We ask the Lord for guidance in translating our Christian belief into action.
