ABOUT

The Cleveland Catholic Women's Day of Reflection is dedicated to enriching the lives of women as they are inspired to grow in relationship with the Lord and each other.

About

In the summer of 2018, a group of faithful, Catholic lay women began meeting to discuss the possibility of having a one-day Catholic women's conference for our diocese.  Our interest was spurred by seeing the successful women's conferences in neighboring dioceses, including Toledo and Columbus, which have grown to attract thousands of women.  We believe events for women in Cleveland will surely enhance our thriving Catholic community.

 

This year our theme is "Inflame Me with Thy Love," a message shared by St. Catherine of Siena in her Prayer to the Holy Spirit. Through the intercession of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and our patron saint, St. Catherine of Siena, our prayer is that this day will set you on fire with love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
