Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) seeks to educate women toward a more profound understanding of their God-given dignity through study in small groups of faith and friendship. Rooted in the teachings of Pope St. John Paul II, Endow affirms the genius of women – the feminine genius – and empowers them to fulfill our culture’s desperate need for an authentic feminine presence in every aspect of life and society.
Endow believes that the deepest transformation of heart and mind is through intimate relationships in a small group. We’ve seen this proof of concept since the early church. Small group communities create the most lasting impact on human development. By unpacking our rich Catholic heritage together, we create opportunities for women to learn, build deep friendships, and deepen their relationship in Christ.
"I think we all know that the mission of Endow is maybe even more important today than when we founded it."
"Of all the women’s groups, Endow has been the most healing for me. I didn’t expect all the healing graces.”
“When I encountered Endow I thought to myself, finally! This is it! Endow is a pot of gold.”
“I am so thankful for Endow. It changed my life and I am certain the Holy Spirit is at work through this amazing and fruitful Apostolate.”
“Endow honors the intelligence and the nature of women. An Endow group is a place for women to gain knowledge, share insights, and participate in the unique and particular wisdom that is the feminine genius.”
“Endow has been the catalyst that has helped to open our hearts to one another while discovering new information and healing by embracing our dignity as women.”
“Endow has me working on myself all the time. That’s why I love Endow!”
“I have since facilitated numerous studies. Each study has brought spiritual fruit and a deep community of friendship.”
“It was suggested to a young woman by a mutual friend that this young woman should join my Endow study group. As we welcomed her, I had no idea that she was thinking of leaving the Catholic Church.
This was to be her final attempt to hold onto her Catholic faith. Over time, and as we read the study guides and learned together, this young woman had all of her questions answered. She is today a fervent and faithful Catholic! Thank you Endow! And God be praised!”
“I felt the love of God that St John Paul II transmits to us... I fell in love with Mother Mary and for that reason I want to be more dedicated in this new study that we're about to begin. I THANK GOD for putting me in this group of divine and wonderful women who have taught me so much.”
