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: Sylvania, OH
Celeste, did you host or attend this Blessed Brunch?
Where was the Brunch held?
Tell us a bit about what happened at the Brunch.
We started the gathering with an opening prayer, and then we all answered some questions about ourselves as we ate scrumptious brunch food. It was really wonderful to talk about Catholicism openly and share what we love about our Faith. Even though most of us had never met, all the women connected really well and we were able to talk like life-long friends.
What was your feeling going into the Brunch, and what was it coming out of the Brunch?
I was excited to go to the brunch, and I left with peace and joy over finding more like-minded sisters in Christ!
What’s next for you personally and/or for the group?
We all exchanged emails and we are thinking about starting a women’s spiritual book study group!
What advice do you have for someone who is interested in attending and/or hosting a Blessed Brunch but may be hesitant or fearful?
Never let your fear get in the way. When you let God become bigger than your fears, you open your life up to Him to work in beautiful ways!
Where did you see God move?
None of us knew what to expect going into the brunch, and we didn’t know who would attend. But we all chose to go to the brunch despite this. Each women listened to the little nudge the Holy Spirit gave them to attend.
This brunch gave us all a chance to meet other like-minded women who are in love with Our Lord and to create new friendships.
