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.”

Taste and See Retreat: Coming in November

All women (lay and ordained) are invited to the Third Annual Women’s Retreat at the Bosque Center on November 14-15.
Come for a weekend of fellowship, fun, faith, and a bit of learning starting on Friday night with registration at 5:30 PM and light supper, followed by a fun introduction to ‘spiritual types’. The retreat will end by 3:00 PM on Saturday. Plan to stay at the Bosque Center and enjoy a real retreat away from family obligations.
If you attended last year or in 2012, you know how much fun this retreat is. Invite a friend to come with you this year!!

Kathleen Pittman of St. Andrew’s in Roswell will lead us in an exploration of the Enneagram. Kathleen has many years’ experience teaching the Enneagram. She will share how the Enneagram can help us find balance and wake up to our true selves as we grow faith and build community. Come and learn how this tool can help you understand your own, and others’, ‘spiritual types’. Kathleen is an Education for Ministry (EFM) mentor, professor at ENMU, member of the Daughters of the King in Roswell, and past member of the Diocesan Women’s Council. If you would like to learn something about the Enneagram before the retreat, the book Wisdom of the Enneagram by Riso & Hudson is suggested (not required). It is available from Amazon for about $12.
Registration of $75/person covers a room at the Bosque Center, supplies and 3 meals. Commuter fee is $35 to cover supplies and 3 meals. (Registration is $5 more after November 1.) You can download the registration or register online for the retreat via the links on the Women’s calendar page. Each parish will also have registration forms. (Some 1/2 scholarships are available. Contact Cindy)
The Women’s Council continues to work on ways to make it easier to attend events. If you would like to carpool from the Southern part of the state, contact Amiee. The cost/person for this will be determined by response.
