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: Erie, CO
Madeline, did you host or attend this Blessed Brunch?
Where was the Brunch held?
Tell us a bit about what happened at the Brunch.
There were only two of us at the brunch, so we focused on getting to know one another. We prayed before our meal.
What was your feeling going into the Brunch, and what was it coming out of the Brunch?
I was nervous but excited going into the brunch. I'm new to the area and making friends isn't my specialty. I was excited about the prospect of making a new friend, but was unsure of how it would go.
What's next for you personally and/or for the group?
We exchanged numbers and are going to try to go hiking together sometime.
What advice do you have for someone who is interested in attending and/or hosting a Blessed Brunch but may be hesitant or fearful?
Even if there are just two people, it was still a great way to meet another Catholic woman in your area!
Where did you see God move?
Our conversations flowed very well—something I don't consider myself to be great at.
Now It's Your Turn!
