Women's Spirituality

Calling women of all ages to gather in support and encouragement through discussions and prayer. We meet once a month for an hour in the Convent Chapel.

This year, we've got an exciting and somewhat different plan! We will be reading and discussing the book Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes.
The book is a powerful dovetail to the conversation we had and movement our group made last year... As you'll recall, we spent our time discussing the necessity of both light and darkness in our lives -- they are equally inevitable and valuable. Now, we will use this incredibly insightful book as a way of looking at how we as women transition through the many changes in life (spiritual, emotional, social, physical, mental).

Young at Heart Seniors (age 55+)

Our seniors at St. Simon are better known as the Young At Heart. A vivacious, caring, fun-loving, and deeply spiritual source of wisdom in the parish community. We gather every first Tuesday of the month; except for June, July, and August. Begin in the chapel for Liturgy at 11:30 a.m., followed by a delicious $5 lunch in the Simon Room. Sometimes there is a speaker or entertainment after lunch. Feel free to come to part, or all, of the event, and bring a neighbor (need not be a parishioner to attend). Check the weekly bulletin for upcoming details.
