    Endow’s Letter to Women Study
    All women are invited to join the St. James Mom’s Study Group as we unpack Pope St. John Paul II’s Letter to Women. We will gather two Wednesdays a month, from 12:30-2:30 p.m. in the St. James Church meeting room, starting on January 25th and ending on May 10th. Letter to Women is a pastoral letter that Pope St. John Paul II wrote to all women of the world in 1995, ahead of the Fourth World Conference on Women. We will be using the Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) study guide as we read through John Paul II’s beautiful teaching on the feminine genius. All women are welcome as we journey together. Join us for fellowship and a break in routine to learn alongside other women in our community. 
    Cost is $20 USD for a digital copy or $40 USD for a hard copy. For more information contact Eileen Gaudet at To learn more about Endow, visit
