Women's Ministry


Our Lady of the Assumption Women's Ministry welcomes all women who wish to deepen their faith and relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ through the teachings of the Catholic Church and the sacramental life.  Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Womens’ Ministry provides an environment for learning, sharing, and service.

Through Bible Study and faith formation studies we grow together in our faith and learn together how to walk as disciples of Christ.

Our annual retreat, usually held in March, is a wonderful opportunity to spend a weekend with other Catholic women of faith in an environment that allows us to go deeper into our journey of faith.
