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.

Puzzle Pieces-coming in November

The 5th Annual Bosque Center Gathering on November 18-19 offers a unique opportunity for fellowship, worship, and delving into YOU...Yearning, Owning, Understanding the Puzzle Pieces of your Life.  Bring yourself, your Bible, Book of Common Prayer, and friends to share in exploring ways to "hands on" strengthen your personal worship undergirding your daily life.
Because God is active in our lives, we all have Yearnings.  Some of these have come to fullness, others have not.  We must Own and recognize where we are on our journey.  This will help us Understand how everything that happens is part of the Puzzle of our life.  Set within the structure of collective group-worship, we will journey together through an examination of how long-sought, personal life-dreams can become reality in everyday life with the efficient use of the basic tools used across centuries within our Christian heritage. 
Our guide on this personal spiritual quest will be Elaine Wilson, an active life-long laywoman in the Episcopal Church, a member of your Cathedral, and a graduate of Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.  God's inspiration in her life led her beyond 25 years as a professional, creative liturgical artist into the presentation of a variety of classes on Bible and Church history topics.  Her easy-to-understand background information has become part of the weekly email Bible study created by the Women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande.  (Send your email address to  wdrgstudy@gmail.com  to receive this free, one-of-a-kind data available to both men and women.)

Coming in 2017 is an exciting collaboration of the Women of the Diocese and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew for a Lent Retreat in the Big Bend area. This will include a chance to visit Big Bend National Park as an inspirational way to explore the wildernesses of our lives. Mark your calendar now for March 23-27, so you can attend.
