GROW's "Role of Women in the Church" Conference for the DC/Maryland/Virginia region on February 9, 2013

On Saturday, February 9th, God Renewing Orthodox Women (GROW) Ministries will be hosting Role of Women in the Church at St. Gregorios Orthodox Church - 2337 Fairland Road Silver Spring, MD from 9am-12pm.

Women have been blessed with the responsibility on taking on more roles in the Church the past few years. They are encouraged to come to this event and hear about the "Women in the Early Church", Christian History, the Liturgical and Pastoral roles of women.

Breakfast and lunch will be served at the conference.

GROW Ministries is beginning the mini series of Role of Women for this region. In the near future, the region will also host Role of Women at Home and in the Community. The ministry has hosted the same mini series in the NY and Philadelphia regions and has been well received by the young women of the diocese.
