Welcome to the Endow program!

An hour of study, for the modern apostle, is an hour of prayer.

Saint Josemaría Escrivá, The Way

We are so excited for you to continue your spiritual and intellectual journey with the Endow family! The intellectual life is the happy life. Many women ask us where to start or which study to do next after beginning with our most popular and foundational study on John Paul II’s Letter to Women.

This is really up to you! What are you most interested in studying next? How is the Holy Spirit nudging you about this decision? Have the ladies in your group or parish expressed an area of interest? These are the right questions to ask. The Catholic intellectual tradition is so rich—it’s hard to choose! 

To help guide your pathway, we have categorized the studies into these broad categories with the understanding that there is no perfect category since our philosophical tradition is comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and that the truth is one! What you learn in one study will inevitably form you to receive more in the next one. Please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] for help in discernment!
