Christ Alive Through Mary, Women's Witness Ministry




CA Tiny


“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.
