Ministry of Mothers Sharing....
.....empowering women from the inside out
The M.O.M.S. program is:
- a seven-week journey of personal and spiritual growth
- an opportunity to reconnect with all aspects of your self – mother, daughter, friend, professional, and spiritual being
- a group experience of learning, praying and caring for each other
M.O.M.S. is a nationwide program developed by a Catholic nun to help the mothers in her parish reclaim their own dreams, learn to care for themselves, and reconnect with their spiritual selves in the midst of the busyness of raising a family. Over the past eight years, more than 70 women have participated in the M.O.M.S. workshop here at St. Mary’s.
The next workshop begins in September! Watch the Cow Hollow Church News, Sunday Bulletin and this webpage for dates.

Hear what our previous attendees have said:
“Sharing the MOMS course with seven wise, compassionate and thoughtful women transformed my heart, mind and soul. They took away the loneliness and anxiety that often accompany me on this journey of motherhood. I feel so blessed to be part of the circle of mothers on this sacred journey.” ~ Debbie V.
"For four years I have assumed that living in Berkeley, running my own business and having two children would not allow me the time to be in the MOMs group on eight Thursday mornings. This spring I put those things aside and was a willing participant in a wonderful community of moms. I met caring and inspiring women with whom I shared my concerns and dreams. It allowed me to tap into a spiritual part of myself that needed to be reawakened. A life affirming event!" -- Christine
"For me, the two hours each week for eight weeks that seemed so hard to set aside, became an oasis in my otherwise busy days, and resulted in life-changing insights, laughter, tears and abiding friendships." - Kathleen
"Besides the new friendships that were formed, I found that MOMS provided me a format to take a deeper look at my daily spirituality, what that meant for me today and how I wanted to maintain it as a constant in my daily life." - Susan
