“My deepest desire is to see you in heaven. Every woman who encounters The GIVEN Institute is a chosen daughter of God. My prayer is that you will receive the gift that you are, realize the gifts you have been given, and respond with the gift that only YOU can give. I am honored to accompany you on this journey.
Discover the gift only YOU can give, because of the gift that YOU are
Signature Talk | Women
Women struggle with discovering their gifts, especially in our current culture that confuses the dignity of femininity.
Come and discover your gifts by first receiving the gift that you are, realizing the gifts you have been given, and finally responding with the gift only YOU can give.
Discover the Gift Event
We’re leaning into the truth that our good God can work in and through us at this moment in history, and we’re embracing the benefit of connection, community, and growth that can be found when we come together online.
On each morning of June 10-14, 2020, we’ll host a keynote speaker and explore the gifts and challenges of Catholic women’s leadership. We have a very special prayer time planned at noon, and we’ll come together for Evening Prayer and reflections at night with different religious orders who are members of the GIVEN Network. Our 2020 cohort, our alumnae, and our lay and religious leaders are invited to a live Q&A each night following Evening Prayer with the Sisters.
