On February 1, 1968, during a time of great upheaval in both the Catholic Church and society, St. Josemaria Escriva said: “Women are called to bring to the family, to society and to the Church, characteristics which are their own and which they alone can give […] A woman’s femininity is genuine only if she is aware of the beauty of this contribution for which there is no substitute and if she incorporates it into her own life.”
At Wiggins House, we believe that women can affect positive change in the world around them. We believe the world today needs the virtue and good influence of confident, capable women. We recognize the importance of forming strong communities and of providing young girls and women of all ages with meaningful spiritual and cultural formation. As we plan programs to support this mission, we need your help to continue our work in the Princeton and Philadelphia area.
With your financial support, Wiggins House hosts activities for women at each stage of life, including:
Doctrine Classes and Evenings of Conversation for University students
Leaders Now International and Mother-Daughter clubs for school age girls
Talks on Time Management, Family Life and relevant topics for adult women
Evenings of Recollection for women in Princeton and Philadelphia, as well as a Mornings of Recollection for Mothers and After School Recollections for Teens
We ask for your assistance in 2019, as we continue with our current activities and look for ways that we could expand our efforts in order to reach more women. Please join us in sharing the great message of genuine femininity with women in our community and helping women to have the courage to live up to the very best ideals. We know that women are capable of so much more than we see on television or Instagram. We are confident that you agree. Please join us at one of our upcoming events so that you, too, may be part of the good work that women have to do in society, and please support our efforts with your donation today.
