“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:
Dr. Duru Sakhrani was born in India and immigrated to the Philippines at 5 years old. Sony, as she is known to family and friends, was baptized as a Catholic when she was 15. Educated in Catholic schools all her student life, she completed her Medical Degree at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, Philippines. From the time she was 6 years old, Sony has known that the calling of her life has been to serve the marginalized and the underserved. As a student leader she heard the call of the Blessed Mother and experienced the mantle of her protection as she immigrated to the US in 1983. Working in the Federal Penitentiary in Atlanta, GA, she started a Rosary Ministry for inmates. Sony became a Eucharistic Minister to hospital patients while during her residency training in Psychiatry at St. Francis Medical Center in Pittsburgh, PA. She completed her Fellowship in Pediatric Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. Sony and her husband Ron live in Dardenne Prairie, MO and are active members of Immaculate Conception Dardenne Catholic Church. Their daughter, Katie and granddaughter Sophia live in Chapel Hill, NC. In the last year, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the Novena to our Lady of Mt. Carmel and the Physician’s Prayer have provided shelter in the storm, looking to the promised morning of hope.
