Our mission is to foster an appreciation for the personal dignity of women, to encourage women to know and love God, and to inspire them to use their feminine gifts for the transformation of family and society.
The CWC is an event for healing, for spiritual direction, for receiving tools for everyday living and resources for education. CWC is presented by Pilgrim Center of Hope’s Ministry of Conferences.
All women are welcome. You don’t have to be perfect to begin anew in Christ!

PREPARE YOUR HEART
The CWC Prayer
Lord Jesus, thank you for the constant love you have for me. Thank you for the gift of life and the gift of faith.
Today, take me into your Sacred Heart and renew my life. I open my heart to your grace, to be healed where healing is needed. Replace any wounds or worries with your peace and joy. Send your Holy Spirit into my life. Guide me to be the woman you have created me to be: your beloved daughter, disciple, and friend. Make me a woman of faith, hope and charity. Please remove any obstacles which keep me from living this way.
Lord, pour out your grace upon this year’s Catholic Women’s Conference, upon the planning efforts, and upon many women – that they may hear your invitation and respond. May the Conference be a time of spiritual renewal, healing, reconciliation and joy for all who attend.
Thank you, Lord Jesus. For all this, I pray in your sweet Name.
Mary, Mother of God, Our Lady of Hope, pray for us.
