Wine & Wonder

We recently ended the very first session of our Women’s Book Group, Wine & Wonder.

Catholic Women's Book Club Louisville KY

Led by Aileen Delgado, the ladies met every other Tuesday night to discuss “The Authority of Women in the Catholic Church,” by Monica Miller. We were thrilled with the attendance and discussion! 

If you haven’t read the book, expect (1) to explore how women “exemplify the reality of the Church in relation to Christ and the ministerial priesthood*” and (2) a theological response to modern feminism and claims of gender irrelevance.

Of course, we recommend this book to every lady, starting as early as senior year of high school or freshman year of college. “I feel that it would be good for young women to learn about their feminine authority in the Catholic church early, but I also feel for women who are older it is never too late for them to learn and share that knowledge with others,” Aileen says.

“This book presents amazing view points that if we take the time to ponder on them, we could grow a little deeper in our faith.” Our prayer is that FRP can provide a space–through all of our programming– for men and women to grow deeper in their faith. All books chosen for our discussion groups will reflect this mission!

Wine & Wonder is a great way to get connected with women in your faith community. Regardless of which Parish you attend, we hope you’ll join us for our next session in the fall.

And even if reading isn’t your thing, stay up to date with all our events by subscribing to our email list (here)or by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

Have a suggestion for our next book? Let us know! We’ll bring the wine!

Thank you for reading the inaugural blog post on our brand new website! Things are hoppin’ around FRP headquarters and we are so excited to share some of those happenings with you! First I want to share a few things we’ve done SO FAR this year before going into all the things we’re looking forward to.

– This spring we created and completed an FRP original study for high school girls called The Pursuit.

Here are co-leaders, Haley and Monica, working on content.
