Don't miss this special december event.
We will be providing the hors d'oeuvres and beautiful live music, but we need your help to make this the best GIFT event ever! We are asking all of our guests to bring a small gift-wrapped item, but you do not need to spend money on a gift. In fact, we want you to choose an item from your home to re-gift.
GIFT (Growing in Faith Together) is a ministry for the women of St. Mary's and their guests. Each year we host three speaker events, giving women the opportunity to share their faith in a fun and relaxed setting. Our guests enjoy wine, cheese, coffee and desserts and have the opportunity to gather with old friends and make new ones.
Since 2012 GIFT events have offered a variety of speaker presentations designed to inspire our guests and build our community of faithful women.
Our Planning Team:
Kathy di Girolamo
To gather women together in a relaxing environment, as we listen, discuss, and share Christian topics that will enrich a greater love for Christ and the Catholic Church.
The women of GIFT are a faith community bound together by a shared commitment to the teachings of Jesus Christ. We host powerful, faith filled speakers who touch the hearts and minds of women to ignite a greater love of God and sense of faith. We support one another emotionally through the bonds of Christian love. We connect socially through breaking bread and lively conversation in a safe, relaxing and beautiful environment. And we embolden each other to go forth and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel.
