This is a two-day residential seminar for women which aims to inspire and give you encouragement to live the Catholic faith today.       

As well as stimulating talks you will have time to exchange ideas and experiences with other participants who, like you, want to integrate their faith into their professional, social and family lives.

During the seminar, there will be time to learn more about activities and projects in which members and cooperators of Opus Dei are involved. These actitivities aim to serve society. They find their inspiration in Christian values.
