Lexington Catholic Community announces WINGS program

The Lexington Catholic Communitys WINGS (Women IN Gods Spirit) group is pleased to announce its winter program being led by Liz Walz, an Associate of the Sisters of Providence of Holyoke.

Walz is executive director of the Genesis Spiritual Life & Conference Center in Westfield, founded a Catholic Worker house in Philadelphia from 1997-2007, and is certified in spiritual direction, massage therapy, and as a yoga teacher.

In this five-week series, Catholic saints, mystics and wisdom figures will lead participants to grow in love for God, for others, for creation, and for themselves. Each session will begin with a brief history and will feature a practical and accessible form of prayer inspired by the selected saint or mystic. Sessions will be experiential, with poetry, music, silent reflection and an opportunity to share. Participants will walk away with practical tools for putting on the mind of Christ.
