IPJC Women’s Spirituality
The mission of the Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center Women’s Convocations was to celebrate the transforming presence of the Spirit moving in our world, our church, and our cosmos. As faith-filled women, we joined together for prayer, ritual, and story; education and empowerment; and celebration and transformation. Affirmed in our spirituality, we act for justice in our church and the Earth community.
CDs, Videos and Cassettes of select Convocation speakers are available to rent at no charge from IPJC. Please call us at 206-223-1138 for more information.
Women’s Experience and Voice Expressed in Ritual and Story Beginning in 1994, thousands of women throughout the Northwest gathered in small groups to express their spirituality: to pray, share stories of faith and honor their experience as women. These gatherings have formed a tapestry of grace we call WEAVERS. Our tapestry has been created by women from many strands of our Catholic tradition. At each WEAVERS gathering women have recalled the stories of our faith ancestors, spent time in prayer, and shared symbols that express our common faith experience. The fabric of each event has been enriched by the threads of each woman’s gifts and participation. The rituals used in these WEAVERS gatherings have been compiled in two ritual books and a music tape or CD. Both are available for purchase. If you would like assistance in organizing a small group for prayer and ritual, email IPJC or 206-223-1138.
