Connecting women one grace filled encounter at a time

Saturday, October 26, 2019. Find all the conference details here!


Inspired by the relationship between Our Blessed Mother, Mary and her beloved cousin, Saint Elizabeth, ENCOUNTER GRACE is an organization dedicated to helping women build community, one grace-filled encounter at a time. Scripture tells us that Mary and Elizabeth shared a special bond, making the effort to stay connected despite being separated by miles, age and circumstance, all the while keeping Christ at the center of their relationship. And so with this relationship as our model, our mission is to create authentic, engaging opportunities where women can come together, encountering and witnessing each other's stories, sharing this thing we call life, all while having a few laughs along the way. 

Just as Mary and Elizabeth journeyed together, we hope that no matter where you are on your own faith journey, you will find friendship and joy with the women you encounter at one of our events.

I am a firm believer that our God is a God who connects the dots of our lives, weaving our stories together so that we ebb and flow, meeting and encountering one another at just the right time. I like to think this is #HowWeEncounterGrace.
