This day of reflection will include not only those who have passed but the living witnesses in your own lives that have inspired you. Join us “…as we call on the holy women who have gone before us…” May we “…be given the grace to become what they have been for the honor and glory of God.” (Quote Quote adapted from the Litany of Women for the Church by Joan Chittister.)
