"To educate women towards a deeper, more profound understanding of their God-given dignity and vocation as women."
ENDOW (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) is a Catholic educational program that brings women and girls together to discover their God-given dignity and to understand their role in humanizing and transforming society. ENDOW utilizes small study groups, conferences and retreats to cultivate faith, fellowship and formation.
ENDOW for Women brings women together to discover their God-given dignity and to understand their role in humanizing and transforming society. ENDOW provides women with a forum through which to explore and understand what it means to be a feminine person created in God's image. As a basis for discovery, ENDOW promotes the New Feminism, which is defined by Pope John Paul II. The New Feminism recognizes and affirms the "true genius of women" and responds to our culture's desperate need for an authentic feminine presence in every aspect of life and society.
ENDOW for High School girls offers a program called True Beauty...Revealed, A High School Study. This study educates young women about their authentic femininity using a small group setting and study curriculum. The studies are based on Pope John Paul II's writings regarding the New Feminism, Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and other Catholic thinkers, philosophers, and saints.
ENDOW for Middle School girls offers a program called Girl Genius, A Pre-Teen Program. In an effort to reach younger women, ENDOW has created a special Girl Genius program for young women, ages 10-13. The Girl Genius study helps young women better understand their nature, dignity and special role in society.
Dignity of Woman Retreat: Each of these programs is a parish based study. A great way to kick off the study is to have a weekend Dignity of Woman Retreat. This Friday evening and all day Saturday focuses on the dignity of woman and her call to be female as instructed by the writings of Pope John Paul II. It offers communion with other women, focusing on the dignity in being a woman, activities, prayer time, confession and Mass and plenty of food.
