ENDOW (Dignity of Women)
ENDOW (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) is a Catholic educational program that brings women and girls (Middle School and High School) together to discover their God-given dignity and to understand their role in humanizing and transforming society. As a basis for discovery, ENDOW promotes the New Feminism, which is defined by St. 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 utilizes small study groups, conferences and retreats to cultivate faith, fellowship and formation. To learn more, please visit the ENDOW website.
To discuss having an ENDOW retreat at your parish, please contact the Marriage & Family Life Office.

Saint Augustine’s Men’s Purity Group
Saint Augustine’s Men’s Purity Group (SAMPG) is a fellowship of Catholic men who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to obey God’s laws, to stop lusting and become sexually pure. There are no dues or fees for membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. For more information, group meetings and locations, please visit the Saint Augustine’s Men’s Purity Group website.
