Womens Book Club

Growing in Goodness, Truth, and Beauty Through Literature

“From the moment a soul has the grace to know God, she must seek.”

Saint Mother Teresa

Together, we accompany women in reading great books and spiritual classics to encourage personal growth, friendship, and meaningful conversations to explore the human condition and reorient ourselves to what is good, beautiful, and true. Our group reads one book per month and meets to discuss it once a month. Book selections for each year correspond to the themes of a woman's life. This year we are excited to dive into the theme of "seeking" with the help of some excellent authors such as Brother Lawrence, T.S. Eliot, and Natalie Merrill, among others.

Where: Black Diamond Bakery (right side)

When: Second Saturday of every month from September to June (adjusted for holidays)

  • 8:30 to 9 am optional coffee chat

What: Well Read Mom format

Who: All Women

Is it only for biological mothers?

No, it's for any woman of any generation. All women hold a type of motherhood role in their life. As PJII wrote: Women“...exhibit a kind of affective, cultural and spiritual motherhood which has inestimable value for the development of individuals and the future of society.”

 

Why: To grow in goodness, truth, and beauty through literature. We anticipate that these books and discussions will not only foster connections but also contribute to the development of our sense of motherhood identity, whether rooted in biology or spirituality, across our community and within our families.
