Featuring a presentation on
Pope St. John Paul II’s "Valentine’ to Women"
by Sharon Perkins, MA
Director of Evangelization,
Catechesis & Family Life at the Diocese of Austin
In 1995, and in advance of the UN’s Beijing Conference on Women, Pope John Paul II addressed his Letter to Women to women throughout the world. Repeating the themes of his 1988 apostolic letter Mulieris Dignitatem (On the Dignity and Vocation of Women), he gives thanks to God for the gift of our femininity, considers the dignity and rights of women, and describes what he calls “the feminine genius.” Join our guest speaker Sharon Perkins as she guides us in a reflection on this beautiful love letter and the inspiring vision it gives for women’s role in the Church, the family, and society.
Appetizers, wine/drinks will be served.
