An Evening of Recollection for Women

The Well is not hosting an Advent gathering this year, but here’s an excellent opportunity to quiet your heart as you prepare for the coming season.

Fr. Chris Reising, a priest of the Diocese of Des Moines, is presenting an evening of recollection for women on Monday, November 26 at St. Augustin Catholic Church, located at 545 42nd Street in Des Moines (map here).

The evening will begin with the sacrament of reconciliation at 6:30pm in the main church space at St. Augustin. Beginning at 7:00pm, Fr. Reising will present two meditations roughly 20 minutes each with time in between for quiet prayer and contemplation. The meditations are inspired by the spirituality and writings of St. Josemaria Escriva, especially with a focus on how to sanctify our everyday lives as women in the world pursuing holiness.

All women are welcome, high school age and up. Registration is not necessary, but it would be helpful to have an attendance estimate. If you plan to attend, please send Sue Smith an email at [email protected] and let her know your intentions.

Hope to see you there!

The Well is a vibrant women’s ministry rooted in prayer, evangelization, and charitable action. We exist to gather women together, to celebrate spiritual friendships, and to build up the local Catholic community. Just as the Samaritan woman encountered Jesus at a well, we pray the work of this ministry opens doors to a deeper and sustained encounter with Jesus for those who gather with us.
