Women of Bethany
A Catholic Ministry of Women
The Women of Bethany seeks to share with women an experience of God's love, the healing touch of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Women of Bethany exists in order to offer women a place of hope, refreshment and renewal. This is done through the ministries of prayer, music, hospitality and teaching. The ministry uses the place of Bethany as revealed in the Gospels as its model. There is an openness to the use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Women of Bethany is faithful to the magisterium and tradition of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Women of Bethany has a love of Mary, the mother of Jesus, as our model of faithfulness to God's will.
... Blessed is she who believed
"But the hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of woman is being achieved in its fullness,
the hour in which woman acquires in the world an influence, an effect, and a power never hitherto achieved.
That is why, at this moment when the human race is undergoing so deep a transformation, women impregnated with
the spirit of the Gospel can do much to aid mankind in not falling"
