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: Rockville, MD
Leia Sofia, did you host or attend this Blessed Brunch?
Where was the Brunch held?
Tell us a bit about what happened at the Brunch.
We prayed together and just ate and talked. It was about getting to know the women that were there.
What was your feeling going into the Brunch, and what was it coming out of the Brunch?
At first, I felt extremely awkward because I was the youngest one there. But eventually I started talking to some of the women and it wasn't so bad. I also met someone close in age and we immediately hit it off.
Overall, I had such a fun time and I would gladly do it again.
What's next for you personally and/or for the group?
I would love to go to more brunches that are near my area to meet more of the women who shares the values of faith and community.
What advice do you have for someone who is interested in attending and/or hosting a Blessed Brunch but may be hesitant or fearful?
Just go for it, honestly. It will definitely be awkward at first but eventually it will get better. By the end of the day, you will be chatting away!
Where did you see God move?
I saw God move in the conversations these women were having. I learned a lot about them in a short amount of time and they, in return, learned a lot about me since I immediately started becoming comfortable.
