I went to a wonderful woman's event at my parish last night. It was called Witnesses to Hope and it's sponsored by the Servants of God's Love, an order of sisters who belong to our parish Christ the King, here in Ann Arbor.
What a lovely evening it was. The talk by Sister Ann Shields was just what I personally needed to hear. I went with a very dear friend Patti and we had a wonderful time driving there together and catching up on things.
This event is held bi-monthly and consists of a talk followed by dessert and fellowship. The Servants of God's Love do it all, and this is just one example of how appropriate is the name of their order.
I had so much fun. The talk was fabulous and the fellowship was something I guess I really needed. I haven't had so much fun with girlfriends in a very long time. (OK, with sisters in the Lord. You get the idea.:-) There was a lot of laughter, a lot of warmth and friendship. Pat, who often comments on this blog was there too. Pat, add your thoughts if you care to.
What a blessing this event is to our parish. The next will be held on March 15 at 7:30. If you live in SE Michigan you should come. Sister Dorcee Clarey, the order's superior, will be speaking. Sister Dorcee was my oldest son's first teacher after I stopped homeschooling him in 6th grade. She has a heart of gold. I'm looking forward to her message.
Sister Dorcee also has a blog called Witnesses to Hope. You can find it here. I only found this out last night. It will definitely be one of my regular reads. Check it out!
