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)

As women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande we work to live out this promise in retreat, fellowship, study, and ministry.

Boldly Forward: Bible Women Inspire Our Lives: August 17-18

 The Women’s Ministry of the Diocese is holding their 7th Annual Bosque Center event on August 17--18. Starting with the Crazy Quilt Conversations event in 2012, we have met annually at the Bosque Center for fellowship, inspiration, and shared learning. All women are invited to join the conversation this year as we vision how to continue enriching the lives and ministries of women in the Diocese of the Rio Grande.
Entitled Boldly Forward, this year’s event will explore the lives of some Biblical women and what they can teach us about our vision for living our ministries in Christ in the Diocese of the Rio Grande. By looking at the lives of women like Mary of Nazareth, Mary Magdalene, Judith, and others, we will see that these women are much more than the meek, mild, and quiet persons, as they are often portrayed. They were obedient to God’s call and are powerful servants of God in their own right. These women are mentors and inspiration for our own day-to-day lives. Come and be inspired to live more fully and boldly as a woman of God.
Online registration for the event is below. The cost is $50 to cover supplies and 3 meals, provided by the Bosque Center chef. As always, some partial scholarships are available for registration*. Rooms are available at the Bosque Center for $52/night for a single room (shared bathroom). If you live in Albuquerque, you may commute. 

Carpools from Alamogordo, Santa Fe, Farmington are planned or form your own.
Some in-home lodging is available*

*Contact Cindy Davis, Coordinator of Women’s Ministries (cynthiadavisauthor@gmail.com) if you need a scholarship, in-home lodging, or have questions.
