Women of Joy Prayer and Scripture Study

Women of Joy Prayer and Scripture Study

Mission Statement

 “The Women of JOY is a ministry offering prayer and the Catholic study of scripture and Church teachings. Through both prayer and study, this ministry encourages and supports women in our spiritual growth, understanding, and embrace of the Catholic faith. Our ministry is faithful and obedient to the Magisterium of the Church and receptive to the work of the Holy Spirit. We joyfully strive to integrate the fullness and beauty of our faith into our lives, while fulfilling our God-given vocations to know, to love, and to serve God within our families, parishes, and community.”

From a small group of six women that gathered together weekly at each other’s homes almost twenty years ago for prayer and scripture study, the WOJ has grown to over 100 members and now offers a Thursday morning session (10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) and a Thursday evening session (7:00 to 9:00 p.m.) at St. Mark for the women of the parish. Awed by and grateful for the Holy Spirit’s work and our Blessed Mother’s protection, the WOJ cherishes, stewards, and shares the gifts of Life from conception to natural death, of Eucharistic Adoration, and of Spiritual Motherhood of our priests and religious as treasures entrusted to us by our Lord and His Mother and embraces both collective and individual opportunities in their service and support.
