First Young Women’s Evening

by Erica Tighe

Last week we held a young women’s night in our home in Brooklyn. All of the beau­tiful women gath­ered for evening prayer and then a dinner to mingle and intro­duce our­selves to one another.
Then we dis­cussed a sec­tion of Blessed John Paul II’s encyclical on the voca­tion and dig­nity of women, Mulieres Dignitatem. We spoke about the idea that finding one­self is only pos­sible through a sin­cere gift of self. We dis­cussed ways to bring sen­si­tivity to our world of science and tech­nology that has lost it for what is essen­tially human— in our group of friends, family, and work­places. Each one brought her own expe­ri­ences and strug­gles of daily life and we all came together to unite in a sis­ter­hood on the on the journey as women of God.
Lastly, we did a simple craft to rep­re­sent our need of beauty and woman’s role in offering it to the world in fem­i­nine sim­plicity. It was such a grace-filled time of friend­ship, prayer, and com­mu­nion—three things we found essen­tial to follow this mis­sion that JPII delivers to all women.
