Feedback from young women
In the fall of 2009, the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Center, the Catholic center for the University of Colorado at Boulder, hosted a special evening for the students. Titled “Date with Dignity” the evening consisted in several presentations on the origin, identity, and mission of women, group discussions, and desserts. (To read more about this event, click here.) Following this special evening, several ENDOW groups formed on campus. Below are comments from some of the students at the completion of their first ENDOW study.
”I’ve never seen ‘feminism’ from a Catholic viewpoint before. This study has introduced me to a new way to see my sisters, and to live my vocation as a woman to the fullest.” ~ Katie (Fort Collins, CO)
”I really appreciate that ENDOW strives to let each woman know her unique dignity and worth. What an important message for college students to fully embrace!” ~ Therese (Tulsa, OK)
”It has been amazing to hear the perspectives of other Catholic women, and to share experiences as we grow in our Catholic faith.” ~ Jenna (Boulder, CO)
”When you talk to non-Catholics about ‘women’ issues, it’s hard for them to be accepting as soon as they know you are Catholic. I love JP II’s Letter to Women because it’s addressed to all women, no matter their profession, nationality, or religion, which legitimizes it to everyone.” ~ Elena (Kenai, AK)
“ENDOW has been enlightening, educational, and a beautiful experience. I will continue to grow and learn from these women.” ~ Kelly (Colorado Springs, CO)
