Our Blessed Brunches have brought Catholic women together all over the globe. New Bible study groups have been formed, new friendships made, and new tribes assembled—all thanks to women’s fearless “yeses.” If you are interested in hosting or attending a Blessed Brunch, but are curious to see what one actually looks like in real life, we’re bringing you stories from women who have been there, done that.
We will regularly share these Blessed Brunch Stories in the hopes that you will be encouraged to bring one to your own city. Whether you gather with two women or two hundred women, time spent together in fellowship is never wasted. Let’s invite one another into our homes and into our hearts!
Blessed Brunch Stories: Cincinnati, OH
Sarah, did you host or attend this Blessed Brunch?
Where was the Brunch held?
A local parish.
Tell us a bit about what happened at the Brunch.
We prayed together and shared food and fellowship!
What was your feeling going into the Brunch, and what was it coming out of the Brunch?
Going in, I was a bit curious, almost apprehensive, of who would be there. I wondered if I would know anyone or not.
Leaving, I felt like I had made new friends and strengthened the relationships I already had, most of which had actually started at the last Blessed Brunch I attended!
What’s next for you personally and/or for the group?
I see this community moving and grooving! We all jived very well and some of us have started talking more. Many of us have plans to meet up again!
What advice do you have for someone who is interested in attending and/or hosting a Blessed Brunch but may be hesitant or fearful?
Do it! I made one of my very best friends because of a Blessed Brunch this time last year. I almost didn’t go because I didn’t think it had much to offer me. But I’m so glad I decided to attend.
Where did you see God move?
I saw Him move through all the beauty of femininity that was in that room! It was so obvious that each woman was called and chosen and that each of us were answering that call. It was amazing!
