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.”

Lectionary Study Returns for Advent!


After a hiatus, Elaine Wilson, member of the Women's Ministry Council will be resuming her lectionary study this week. You can also participate in person at the Cathedral! 

Next Sunday, the first Sunday of Advent and the fourth Sunday before Christmas, is the beginning of a new Church Year for most Christians.  Every week, going forward, you are invited to receive and discover the depth of meaning in the designated lectionary, or lessons, you will hear in church on the coming Sunday morning.

Enjoy knowing more about what you will be learning.  Spread the good news with friends and family.  And, when you can, come anytime to be part of the informal weekly lectionary group on Wednesday’s at 10:30 AM at your Diocese of the Rio Grande Cathedral in Albuquerque.  You will be joined by many other online participants in this lectionary study to gain new knowledge about the riches of the Bible and The Book of Common Prayer, as you ponder and pray the words used by our Episcopal Church tradition.

To enroll to receive your weekly online lectionary information, send your email address to wdrgstudy@gmail.com to receive this free, one-of-a-kind opportunity available to both men and women. The weekly study will also be posted on this website each week, if you prefer to simply read it here. 
Elaine Aniol Wilson returns as our WDRG online guide.  She earned a Master of Divinity degree from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and holds a journalism/advertising degree from The University of Texas at Austin.  As a lifelong Episcopal layperson, Elaine had 25 years as a professional, creative liturgical artist; her design company produced religious commissions spread across the Western Hemisphere.  Throughout the country, Elaine has presented a variety of classes and workshops on Bible and Church history topics, always with the point-of-view of strengthening personal awareness of the experience of God’s love.
