Gather Us In 2013 women’s conference a big success!

After two years of work by a small group of dedicated volunteers known as the Commission for Women of the Diocese of Worcester, MA, our biennial women’s conference, Gather Us In 2013 took place this past Saturday, November 2, and was a huge success! Over 350 women gathered on a beautiful autumn day at the DCU Center in Worcester to be inspired, to pray, to sing and to fellowship together.

The theme for the day was “Responding to our God of Creation, Redemption and Inspiration” and everyone was inspired by our keynote speakers: gospel singer and storyteller ValLimar Jansen and Catholic journalist, radio and EWTN TV host Teresa Tomeo.

Workshops by Sr. Bridget Haase, OSU, Peggy Patenaude and our prayer panel of Sr. Yvette Bellerose, Sr. Mary Ann Azana and Sr. Jurgita Sereikaite evoked laughter, tears and soothing prayer through the musical chant of Taizé.

Pictures speak a thousand words so we will let these photos help you relive the wonderful day and encourage all of you to attend the gatherings of women in our diocese and beyond, presented by the Commission for Women.
