Women of the Water

“Sharing the Waters of Life I to you, you to me”

The mission: The women of the water have made it their mission to help women grow spiritually and deepen their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Their name is derived from the bible story of the women at the well, where Jesus wanted to share living waters with her. The Women of the Water wants to share the living waters that Jesus gives to the women whom attend the retreats. This is accomplished by a retreat weekend run by the women of the water, focusing on women of the Bible that reflects her love for God and His mission. Each year they bring in the strength of women that surrounded Christ during His ministry and the Blessed Mother. This retreat is filled with meditations, teachings, witnesses, singing, mass. They laugh, prayer, cry, build relationships with each other, but most of all with Jesus Christ and the mission of His church.  

The History: There were many dedicated women who always made it their business to be in the kitchen for DDA retreats, at openings and closings, being on team not to mention the hours spent with their parish youth groups. One of these women was Regina Toolan.  Regina and Rita Andriello approached Father Bob Abbatiello and asked if they could use the retreat house once a month. This monthly pray group quickly turned into a life changing retreat weekend. February 2004, was the first retreat weekend. Each year their numbers grow, they have reached capacity each year. Since then the retreat has transformed women’s lives.

“We have been blessed by the grace of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit each year as we plan a new theme and prepare to bring the love of the father to his daughters” –Rita
