Here is your opportunity to ​ask the questions you‘ve been ​wondering about!

Curiosity about faith is a natural and important part of ​spiritual growth, but sometimes asking questions can feel ​intimidating.


Whether you're seeking clarity on Church teachings, ​exploring doubts, or trying to understand complex doctrines, ​this morning is for you. We are blessed that Father Brian ​Garcia has offered to open the Catholic Student Center and ​answer ALL our questions, and you can even send your ​questions to us anonymously! (see below.) We understand ​anonymity can provide the freedom to ask openly without ​fear of judgment or embarrassment.


Join us as we explore how faith intersects with daily life, ​offering insights and guidance grounded in Catholic ​teachings. Whether you're looking to deepen your ​understanding or simply enjoy a stimulating discussion with ​like-minded Catholic women, grab a cup of coffee and join ​the conversation.

RSVP AND SUBMIT QUESTIONS HERE

Please RSVP by July 10th.

All questions will be asked anonymously.

What Are Women Saying?

“I haven’t been on a retreat in ​over 5 years (4 littles at home) ​the “mini” retreat was perfect, ​and I also loved the theme!”

“I found a thirst for Christ I ​didn’t know was there!”

“I loved the opportunity to listen ​to the reflections and journal ​afterward. Loved the art activity- ​something to take home with ​me.”
