I'm inviting you to join me in supporting the Young Women of Grace® "Catholic Girls Change the World" campaign this Giving Tuesday.
I believe in this program because I have witnessed the impact it has had on so many young girls. Young Women of Grace® was developed two years ago to introduce young women to Catholic Church teaching about their dignity and vocation as women and how to use their feminine genius to become leaders and evangelizers in this day and time. Our aim is to ensure that the future leaders of our Church will be disciples who can cooperate in our mission to "transform the world one woman at a time by affirming women in their dignity and vocation as daughters of God and in their gift of authentic femininity through ongoing spiritual formation."
We truly believe that transformed girls and women can change the world in one generation.
Here are what people are saying about our program in 2018:
"The Young Women of Grace retreat was an absolutely phenomenal experience...Getting to know all of the girls, while diving more deeply into our faith together, was truly something special. We all left the retreat knowing our 'true' dignity and worth as young women, and the role that we are called to play in our modern times. If every middle school, high school, and youth group participated in this study, I have no doubt that our world would not be as broken as it is today. The Young Women of Grace program is something so powerful that words cannot describe it, and the Holy Spirit has His hands all over it." - Alicia, 18, Young Women of Grace, Spirit Savvy Retreat Participant
"I have learned so many new things and feel I have grown in my faith." "This program has given me time for God. I am most grateful my Mom signed me up for this program!" "I enjoyed the program this past year because we got to learn more about ourselves and build a better relationship with God." "[Young Women of Grace] has brought me closer to my friends and more importantly, God." "My experience here has taught me about how I should trust Jesus [and] how to act as a young teen." - Young Women of Grace Program Participants, Our Lady of Fatima, Lafayette, LA
"Women of Grace changed my life...One year later, I'm enjoying facilitating Young Women of Grace®. I feel as though I am doing something to educate the girls in the truth of the Catholic Church and life..." - Christine, Young Women of Grace Facilitator, Allentown, PA
