"She opens her mouth with wisdom, and loving instruction is on her tongue.

She watches over the ways of her household..." 

-Proverbs 31:26-27

Dear Administrator,


Our mothers are our firsts in many ways...our first caregivers, our first teachers, our first friends, and our first encouragers. For those who grew up without their birth mothers, often it is a grandmother or aunt who stands in this important formative role. Godmothers and spiritual mothers also play a special role in passing along the faith and sharing in the role of watching over the family. 


That is why we are offering a special novena of masses to honor and remember all of those who have been "mothers" to us. Our friend, Reverend Father Raymond Atube, a priest of the Archdiocese of Gulu, Northern Uganda, will celebrate a novena of masses for your intentions, beginning on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 12th

I invite you to use the link below to send me the names of your mother, grandmothers, aunts, inlaws, godmothers, spiritual mothers, and other loved ones who have nurtured you throughout your life so that we may offer this Novena of Masses for their spiritual or temporal needs. In this way, we can truly honor those who have gifted us with life, whether biological or spiritual. 

My prayer is that these masses will be a source of grace and blessing for all of the women in your life. 


Thank you for joining us in this Novena of Masses.

With gratitude,

Johnnette and the Staff of Women of Grace

P.S. Should you desire to add a gift of support for these masses, you will receive as our gift links to the Women of Grace television series, My Mother the Saint: Reflection of Gianna Emanuela Molla with Gianna Emanuela Molla, the daughter of St. Gianna Beretta Molla. You will also receive a beautiful electronic card that may be shared with the wonderful women you have enrolled in this novena.

P.P.S. Also available are Gregorian Masses, and single Masses for your deceased loved ones or special intentions. These Masses are personally arranged by Monsignor Matthew Odong, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Gulu in Northern Uganda. If your mother or spiritual mother has died, this would be a beautiful gift of remembrance.

Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, pray for all mothers and spiritual mothers so that they will be able to fulfill their maternal call.

Help them to be lovers and nurturers of all human life from the moment of conception until natural death, all the while being examples for others.

Pray for us their children, so that we, too, will be faithful followers of Your Son. We offer these prayers in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
