St. Teresa Of Avila | Teacher Of Prayer!

In this seven week series, Simone Rizkallah, Director of Program Growth, is joined by Christine Rich and Stephanie Burke to discuss the life and spirituality of this famous 16th century Spanish nun who became first female doctor of the Church!

We are so excited to dive into this Endow study guide with you. With her feminine heart and deep spiritual wisdom, St. Teresa helps us embark on the spiritual journey that takes place within our souls. She guides us through what she coined “The Interior Castle,” where Christ abides in the center of our being.

We will begin this study on Wednesday, March 2 and continue for 7 weeks during Lent, but it can also be done any time in the future that suits you.

Each week we will post the episodes on both the Endow YouTube Channel as well as The Endow Podcast. Please subscribe to both as well as our newsletter to receive the weekly episode releases.

We hope you'll join us on the journey this Lent along with your friends, family or Endow Group Members
