Catholic Women's Leadership 
Spring 2018 Courses

"How rare it is to find a valiant woman! It is perhaps necessarily so, since Scripture says that they are more precious than pearls and diamonds. Let us however work to train a few." -St. Madeleine Sophie Barat (1779 -1865)

Benedicta Leadership Institute Inaugural Class 2016

Perhaps given the state of the world around us you have felt now more than ever a tug on your heart to make a difference.  The Benedicta Leadership program can help you do just that! 

The Women of Grace Benedicta Leadership Institute for Women and Holy Apostles College and Seminary have partnered to present a dynamic new offering for women interested in Catholic Women's Leadership Studies. The first of its kind, this program provides women with the opportunity to acquire a non-credit or credit certification or undergraduate or graduate credit hours in Catholic Women's Leadership Studies. Undergraduate credit hours can be applied toward a Bachelor of Arts in Theology. Graduate credit hours can be applied toward a Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies degree with a concentration in Catholic Women's Leadership Studies. No matter which level of endeavor a woman desires, this program will help her attain her goal, and assist her to "help transform the world one woman at a time."

We are currently enrolling students for the spring semester beginning January 15, 2018 through April 27, 2018! Please consider joining us for a class.

Inaugural Student Testimonial - Dr. Monica Miller's Class
"Perhaps you have had a moment in your life where you knew that your life would never be the same.  That was my experience when I completed the first course in Catholic Women's Leadership...
What I said 'yes' to was a profound experience that transformed my entire womanhood!  What God has entrusted to me as being a female is such an awesome responsibility; I trust that I will learn how to better accomplish this by this program.  Dr. Monica Miller was so passionate and knowledgeable, it was contagious, and I knew that I would never be the same again.  I truly felt the presence of God everywhere on campus..."
