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.”

Registration Available-Abide in Me Retreat

The 2nd Annual Diocesan Women's Retreat (and Day Camp for Children)
at the Bosque Center is coming November 8-9. 
"Abide in Me" 
Mark it on your calendar!

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine-grower…Abide in me as I abide in you.” John 15
The Women’s Council is certain you'll find this to be a spiritual and empowering experience. Based on John 15:1-11 the retreat will provide time to hear Jesus say “Abide in Me…Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.” This retreat will empower women to explore individual spiritual gifts and nourish our spirits through break-out groups, conversation, and sharing together how we are part of, and nourished by, the True Vine.

The retreat starts on Friday, November 8 at 5:30PM with registration and light dinner. You can stay at the Bosque Center if you wish. Everyone is encouraged to come for the entire retreat. However, the format will allow you to just come on Saturday! On Saturday, November 9 registration opens at 8AM. The retreat will end mid-afternoon Saturday.

Retreat cost is $75 if you stay at the Bosque Center (includes 3 meals and a room) or $35 for commuters (includes dinner & lunch) and/or to attend Saturday only (includes lunch). Registration forms available now!

A simultaneous track for children (3-12) and youth helpers will be held in the conference room of the Bosque Center on Saturday to allow moms to attend without having to find child care. The young people will explore the same theme with crafts, games, and other activities.
There is no cost for the children’s camp. Children should bring a sack lunch.
