Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church

Women's Ministry

Hi, I’m Amy Bovie. I have belonged to Maternity for 30 years and have taught in Catholic schools for 35 years. A few years ago, God placed on my heart a desire to create opportunities for women to soak up the peace, love, and strength that comes from Christ alone. Women tend to be the fixers in families and work places, always tending to the needs of others. Like the Samaritan woman at the well, we need to fill our cup first and then care for others. I created and directed numerous women’s retreats and then completed an intense 10 month program to become a certified spiritual director. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when Jennifer Yanchick contacted me about forming a Women’s Ministry at Maternity BVM. Our plan is to kick off this:

Women’s Ministry, Women at the Well on

Saturday, December 7th

with a day of retreat

and then meet once a month

for continued spiritual growth and fellowship.

The day retreat will be from

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

in the MBVM Parish Center.

Lunch will be provided,

and there is no cost for the day.

Women of all ages are invited to attend.

Please bring your Rosary, Bible, and a prayer journal.
