John Paul II Center for Women
The John Paul II Center for women is committed to building strong individuals, marriages and families by bringing together education, outreach, and fertility care services that are rooted in the giving nature of love and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
These small study groups are geared toward helping individuals to develop a deeper spirituality and prayer life. Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading) is prayer using scripture. It is unique because it fosters interior silence, opening the space for deep listening. Through Lectio Divina, individuals learn to be receptive to the voice of God.
Our Fertility Care practitioners provide medical referrals to Gianna Centers. The Gianna Center provides excellent medical service to women, including NaProTechnology, through Family Medicine and Surgical services that fully respect the dignity of all life. Their practices are in full accord with the moral tradition of the Catholic Church.
The Elizabeth Ministry reaches out to women, offering support and encouragement in all aspects of family life. Personal one-on-one visits form the basis of this network and connect women to each other within the community through ministry of authentic care and concern.
