“Give thanks to the Lord, call upon his name; make known his deeds among the nations, proclaim that his name is exalted.” Is 12:4
Christ Alive through Mary, a women’s witness ministry, brings Christ to others like Mary who leads us to her son. Mary overshadowed by the Holy Spirit bears Christ to the world. Our witness is to share the current of grace, the Holy Spirit, with all women. Like Mary we are called to serve others. The ministry invites each woman to participate in a chosen outreach each breakfast. It is our joy to have our speaker share the unique way Christ is alive in their life and like Mary we hasten to serve others.
Please join us at the quarterly prayer breakfasts for Catholic women of the archdiocese of St. Louis. Share together the spirit of gratitude and woman's experience of the transforming love of Christ in her own life.
Come and bring a friend to rejoice in the presence of the Lord.

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER:
Karla Kramer is the Co-Founder and Prefect of the Sodality of the Most Sacred Heart in the St. Louis Archdiocese. She grew up in Illinois raised by a strong Christian mother and atheist father. She has worked as a pediatric emergency room and transport nurse. Karla married her high school sweetheart Tony and they have 8 children and one grandchild.
Karla converted to the Catholic faith in 2005. A spiritual experience in 2013 led her to reorder her life with daily Mass and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament as well as praying for the conversion of her brother and father. Her brother was received into the Catholic Church in 2015 and her father in 2019, at age 96, one month prior to his death.
In February 2016, under the guidance of Fr. Mark Kramer, SJ, the Sodality of the Most Sacred Heart was established to foster a deep understanding of Our Lord’s great love, mercy and longing to be in close relationship with all of His created; to love and pray for all souls.
Karla has assisted with the creation of the Catholic Studies Program at St. Louis University and continues to facilitate weekly faith studies in the St. Louis area. She writes regularly on the Spirituality of the Sacred Heart and helps coordinate Archdiocesan First Friday events and retreats. Karla also serves on the White House Retreat Center Board.
