Women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande

"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in everyone." (1 Corinthians 12:4-6)

“The mission of the Women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande is to connect and support all women in their diverse ministries. We do this by offering opportunities to gather for studying, re-creating, and celebrating who we are as women of Faith, Hope and Love.”

Blessed to be a Blessing Events

This summer, two Blessed to be a Blessing weekends were sponsored by the Women’s Ministry Council for women of the diocese. 
These one-day events focused on how we are blessed by our faith fore-mothers. By looking at women in the Bible, in culture, and in our own lives, attendees were empowered to live into the Way of Love. Nearly 30 women shared insights and ideas at the two events. 

The ladies from Holy Spirit, Gallup were inspired to consider a new ministry of study and inspiration with one another. Attendees in Las Vegas came from Santa Fe, Los Alamos, and Albuquerque. Their discussion focused on ways to be blessings to the women in our communities.
The next event is Entertaining Angels Unaware on Nov. 15-16 at the Bosque Center. Registration is available soon.
