Deus Caritas Est - God is Love Women's Faith Study

Deus Caritas Est | God is Love

A study on Pope Benedict XVI’s Encyclical Letter “God is Love”

In his first encyclical, God Is Love, promulgated on Christmas Day, 2005, Benedict XVI expounds on the reality of love. He knows that the word “love” has been distorted and its meaning tarnished – and this letter calls us back to the foundational truths about love.

This 8-week faith study is an opportunity to come to a deeper understanding of what it means to be loved by God, and how God’s love is present in the concrete reality of our daily lives. Join us for this wonderful opportunity to meet other Catholic women, grow in fellowship and friendship, and go deeper in your relationship with God. 

2 separate offerings: Thursday mornings at 11:00 am – 12:30 pm OR Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm (choose one)

This faith study will be offered online through Zoom, and there will be a total of 8 sessions, 1.5 hours each. We will begin each session together with an opening prayer, and then break into small-group discussions, before returning back together for a closing prayer. 

Each week you will be asked to read the corresponding chapter ahead of time, which you will then discuss with your small-group during the weekly meetings, using the discussion questions provided. It is important to read the chapter before each session so that you will be able to contribute to these discussions. 

Each participant will be assigned to a group, led by a facilitator, and will remain in the same group for the entire duration of the faith study, to encourage trust and sharing among group members. For this reason, we will be unable to accommodate any switching between morning or evening sessions or small-groups. 

Space is also limited, so please make sure to check all the dates so that you will be able to attend the 8 sessions consistently. 

Once you register, you will receive a link to download a digital copy of the faith study guide, as well as further instruction on how to join the weekly meetings.

Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) seeks to educate women toward a more profound understanding of their God-given dignity through study in small group communities of faith and friendship. Rooted in the teachings of Pope St. John Paul II, Endow affirms the genius of women – the feminine genius – and empowers them to fulfill our culture’s desperate need for an authentic feminine presence in every aspect of life and society.

Endow attracts women of all ages, races, nationalities, and vocations and brings them together to read and discuss papal and magisterial documents as well as the lives and writings of the saints. Endow faith study participants encounter the Catholic intellectual tradition together, sometimes for the very first time, and learn how to recognize, cultivate, and live the fullness of their feminine genius in their families, workplaces, and communities.
