PROGRAMS FOR WOMEN
Culture & Family
ART OF LIVING
The Art of Living mission is to promote the true value and dignity of the work in the home, through a series of seminars on the art of creating a home where families thrive. These seminars combine classes, demonstrations and hands-on experiences, giving women the skills they need to care for their family with confidence and artistry.
The mission of Family Enrichment is to provide programs for couples geared to strengthening the family and supporting the husband and wife by fostering learning opportunities within an atmosphere of friendship.
Family Enrichment courses are built on the case-study method. Cases are drawn from rich, complex family situations that reveal the significance of productive relationships among family members.
The Grandmother's Exchange was started by two women who wanted to get to know other grandmothers and share friendship. The group meets in the Buffalo Grove area and surrounding communities, depending on which home will be hosting.
Recollections & Retreats
May you seek Christ. May you find Christ. May you love Christ.
-St. Josemaría Escrivá
A recollection is a time of silent prayer and reflection, with a Solemn Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. It includes a meditation led by a priest of Opus Dei, an examination of conscience and a brief talk on growing in virtue. Confessions and spiritual direction are also available.
