Connecting through Within Ministries

Through Grace Within and Ministerio de Mujeres en Crecimiento Personal (peer-facilitated small group gatherings) women are encouraged to  get in touch with their inner spirit and form bonds with other women.  Through the On the Journey Retreat Series (peer-facilitated three-hour  retreats) women experience the quiet, sacred invitation to delve deeper. 

Prayer is about seeking God in the stillness beyond words and thoughts.  It is about awakening to the presence of God within us.
                           - Laurence Freeman, theologian and Benedictine monk

 The beginning of the year is a good time to check our road map of life.  Taking time to look back and identify our blessings and affirmations, as well as reflect on the challenges we’ve encountered, helps us connect with our values, priorities, goals, and especially God's presence in our lives.

In the new year, what are our inner resources that will keep us on the right road?  Do we need to refuel and restore our energies?  Are we aware of others on the road with us?  What can we do to meet them, listen to them, learn from them or help them?  Prayer is a part of each of these questions - may this new year begin with prayerful reflection.

Taking part in a Within Ministries retreat or group session is a focused way to make personal gains, help others, and keep moving forward in positive directions.
