Need for Companions

Catherine Marilyn As the number of sites grows, so does the need for companions. All companions are asked to attend an orientation program to learn about the Women to Women program and about our six individual sites. Companions are also encouraged to attend retreat days as part of their ongoing formation for this ministry. Two overnight retreats are planned each year — one in the spring for the renewal of the companions and one in the fall that includes both companions and participants. The spring retreat for volunteers is provided to avoid ministry " burn-out " and we find the fall retreat a sacred experience of our unity with all women.

Companions and women interested in becoming involved in a Women to Women listening circle can find more information about the sites listed above by clicking on the name of the place. Site information includes when gatherings occur at a site and who to contact to learn more about a site.
