Women at the Well Prayer Group

Zoom | Wednesdays at 8pm ET

Do you need a little spiritual “boost” in the middle of your week? Are you looking for some fellowship with others on the path of infertility and loss? We’re here for you! In an effort to create a deeper sense of community, help women from around the country (and the world) to get to know each other, and just have some time together with the Lord, we’re launching the virtual Women at the Well Prayer Group! We’ll meet every Wednesday at 8pm Eastern, starting May 10, 2023 through May 1, 2024. We’re keeping it casual: drop in when you can or when you need some extra support or prayer. There are no sign-ups, no “small group” structure or break outs; just time to pray, share, and be encouraged. We’ll use Johnette Benkovic-Williams’ book Grace-Filled Moments as a guide, but you don’t need to own the book to join. We hope to “see you at the Well!” Click to join: Wednesdays at 8pm ET.

Cherished: A Retreat for Those in a Season of Infertility

Saint Benedict, LA | July 7–8, 2023

Infertility is a heavy burden that not everyone understands. It can leave those struggling feeling isolated and wrestling with a lot of conflicting emotions. If this is your burden, you don’t have to carry it alone! The Archdiocese of New Orleans and Springs in the Desert are partnering to offer Cherished: A Retreat for Those in a Season of Infertility on July 7–8, 2023 at the St. Joseph Abbey Retreat Center. Wherever you are on the path of infertility, we invite you to join the Springs in the Desert team as they reflect on the emotional, relational and spiritual aspects of the infertility experience, and offer practical suggestions for strengthening your relationship with God and your spouse. Come with your spouse or on your own for a time of prayer, healing, and friendship with others on this same path. Learn more and register.
