WALKING WITH PURPOSE

Our WWP community is comprised of women, just like you. We strive to learn more about our faith and understand how the teachings of Jesus Christ can be relative to our everyday lives. Together we create an authentic community that laughs, learns, grows, and loves one another. We offer two day/time options for our gatherings: Tuesday evenings, 7:30-9pm or Wednesdays, 12:15-2pm. We meet at the St. Denis Parish Center (school). We don’t actually exercise—we “walk” on a faith journey together. Walking with Purpose leads hearts to Christ.
