Grace Within is a small group spiritual formation process for women utilizing personal journals and led by peers. We continue this personal spiritual growth process grounded in a 23 year history. Founded in the Catholic tradition and having grown from its Catholic roots to be inclusive of all Christian traditions, Within Ministries is rooted in the Benedictine values of hospitality, prayer, and community. The spiritual process invites awareness, listening, humility, reflection, silence, and presence. Grace Within sessions can be held in an individual home, a room at your local school or church, a local community room (e.g. library). Choose a location with space for a circle of chairs, restroom facilities, and a second room if child care will be offered.
