Who We Are
Walk with us to the deep waters of peace.
Join us at the Well
Just like the imperfect Samaritan woman who encountered Jesus at the well,
we long to drink deeply from the Well of Living Water, become transformed,
and go forth to invite other women to the Well, who is Jesus!
After facilitating several retreats for women, our co-founders Becky and Stephanie noticed the deep desire women possessed to drink from deep waters in their daily lives, outside of retreat formats.Â
With the blessing of the Diocese of Baton Rouge Office of Evangelization and Catechesis, they gathered a group of women from across the Diocese of Baton Rouge to discern a response to the hungers they noticed in women.Â The idea of offering evenings of reflections for women was born. After a continued year of prayer and discernment, this group of women birthed Women of the Well Ministry.
