Honor the Women in your Life


Mary of Magdala was the first to preach the Good News of the Resurrection! This year, in celebration of her July 22nd Feast Day, Catholic Women Preach encourages you to honor the women in your own life who have been "Marys of Magdala" to you by making a donation in their honor.

We invite you to honor those women -- living or deceased -- who raised, taught, or inspired you on your faith journey. Catholic Women Preach will post the names of your honorees on catholicwomenpreach.org (you may also opt not to display the name of your honoree).

Please consider inviting your network to join you in honoring inspiring women of faith and lifting up the voices of Catholic women preachers using one of the buttons below:
