From the desk of Johnnette...

Dear Administrator,


Recently I shared with some leaders and friends of Women of Grace® about our plans and prayers for 2024 and I wanted to make sure you were included in this important group.

For the past number of years, I have asked God for a “word” to anchor our apostolate into the coming new year. I do believe that the first word He gave me was “trust.” For the next two years, the word was “intentionality.” Last year, the word was “move forward.” A little later in 2023 the word “formation” was also given. This year the word is “the next step.”


As I have reflected, I realize that these “words,” strung together, have formed a path for us – one of advancement and growth, hope and promise, acceleration, and expansion. And, so it is. This new year is brimming with further opportunities to live the Apostolate’s mission to “transform the world one woman at a time.”

We are poised. We are ready. And we are setting out on “the next step.”


Let me give you an overview of what’s on this year’s horizon:

  • The printed version of our Foundational Study, “Full of Grace: Women and the Abundant Life,” will breach the Pacific Rim in both Australia and the Philippines.
  • Additionally, we have reason to hope it will make its way into various countries in Africa.
  • The Study has been translated into Spanish and Ukrainian, and we are prayerfully considering other languages for translation.
  • A new study series entitled “Moments with Mary” will be launched along with the long-awaited study called “Grace-Filled Moments.” Two other studies may also be printed by year’s end.
  • We will continue to offer the Foundational Study to women the world over via the Internet. It has been taken by women in Central and South America, Spain, England, and beyond.
  • An increase of in-person study groups is planned for this year in Ireland.
  • Several in-person and online events are scheduled for 2024 including our annual retreat at Malvern Retreat House in Malvern, PA.
  • Finally, the Benedicta Institute for Women will be relaunched in April under the guidance of our newly appointed Academic Advisor, Dr. Donald Wallenfang. The week-long immersive course, “Who is Woman? The Journey from Eve to Mary,” will be offered at Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center in North Palm Beach, FL the week of April 22nd. Participants will be able to apply the course toward a certification in Catholic Women’s Leadership to be awarded by the Institute once all certification requirements are met. Bishop William Waltersheid of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Spiritual Advisor to Women of Grace, will also be with us to meet the spiritual needs of the participants. The Bishop will also present a series of mini-teachings for spiritual formation.


None of these critical programs are possible without the support of friends like you. Would you prayerfully consider becoming a Mission Partner? By doing so, you join a passionate group of individuals from around the world who work hand-in-hand with us in our mission to transform the world one woman at a time by affirming women in their dignity and vocation as daughters of God and in their gift of authentic femininity through ongoing spiritual formation and our vision of a civilization and culture imbued with the spirit of the Gospel renewed, revitalized, and healed through the love of God.


In gratitude for your monthly support, you will receive:


  • All Women of Grace Exclusive member benefits and…
  • Experience a greater sense of joy by partnering in our mission “to transform the world one woman at a time by affirming women in their dignity and vocation as daughters of God and in their gift of authentic femininity through ongoing spiritual formation.”
  • Share with us in our vision of “a civilization and culture imbued with the spirit of the Gospel renewed, revitalized, and healed through the love of God.”
  • Grow your faith with access to exclusive Women of Grace online resources including webinars and other learning content.
  • Gain full access to our “Growing Together“ gatherings – a monthly live online learning and fellowship event. You’ll also receive a behind-the-scenes look at what’s happening at Women of Grace.
  • Receive special invitations to spiritually enriching Women of Grace events.
  • Access to submit your mass intentions at any time via a special email address. Every Wednesday, the Holy Mass is celebrated for your intentions.


If you feel a sense of urgency to help us in our mission to “transform the world” will you join us today by becoming a Mission Partner? If you are already a Mission Partner, will you consider increasing your monthly gift?


Our Mission Partners are the backbone of our apostolate because they provide monthly sustaining support for all of our apostolic outreaches and programs. They truly work side-by-side with us to heal hearts, save souls, and change lives. Tens of thousands of women have already experienced hope, healing, and new life through Women of Grace. Let’s stand shoulder-to-shoulder and soul-to-soul to reach tens of thousands more!


Please know that all of us here at Women of Grace are praying for you and your loved ones this New Year and throughout the coming Lenten season. May the abundant life of Jesus Christ be yours and may God bless you!

With gratitude and love in the Two Hearts,

Johnnette B. Williams
