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: New Orleans, LA
Samantha, did you host or attend this Blessed Brunch?
Where was the Brunch held?
Tell us a bit about what happened at the Brunch.
We ate, did a clothing exchange, prayed, and did a coloring the Sacred Heart activity together. Mostly we just talked.
What was your feeling going into the Brunch, and what was it coming out of the Brunch?
I looked forward to it and it was at least as good as I expected. The ladies are wonderful and there was none of the nonsense I've often seen in other women's groups. Everyone seemed sincere, genuine, and God-centered.
What's next for you personally and/or for the group?
I may attend another meeting this week!
What advice do you have for someone who is interested in attending and/or hosting a Blessed Brunch but may be hesitant or fearful?
I'd say there's nothing to be hesitant about. For food, I do recommend selecting a few ladies to bring the food because you might end up with too much.
Where did you see God move?
Mostly in our conversations. They were very God-centered and real.
