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.

What's Happening

Retreats and Renewal in and around
the Diocese of the Rio Grande

This is your ministry as Women of the Diocese: Contact Cindy with Ideas!

You are invited to be part of the Women of the Diocese E-Mail Bible Study!  This is meant to enrich your understanding of Scripture. Each Monday, you’ll receive a simple, short, e-mail in your inbox. During Lent we'll be looking at the Gospel of Mark. Sign up by sending your email address to WDRGstudy@gmail.com. Both men and women are invited to participate, even though this is sponsored by the Women of the Rio Grande. (Sign ups are ongoing.)


Exploring Sabbath, the 6th Annual Bosque Retreat with the Rev. Monica Whitaker

Monica, a former member of the Cathedral and Diocese of the Rio Grande will lead our 2017 Bosque Retreat. We will experience and explore the idea of Sabbath Rest and how it is necessary for our spiritual health. We will experience Sabbath as Gift, Refreshment, Thanksgiving, and, yes, Quiet. Registration info available in September on this website. 

Christmas Party 2017 will support the Women's Council of Empowerment like last year. It will be held at the Cathedral. Watch for more details.
