One moment in time changed the destiny of the world – and it came by the power of the Holy Spirit through a woman. The Blessed Virgin Mary said, "'Fiat mihi, Be it done unto me,'" and with that Salvation came to the world. 

Join us at St John Neumann - Regina Coeli Catholic Church for a dynamic and inspirational Women of Grace event that will explore the mystery of the Annunciation. Abundant graces will be yours as you enter more deeply into the mystical embrace of the Holy Duet, Mary and the Holy Spirit.

In addition, you will:

-Find out why the mystery of the Annunciation is your mystery as well and how to enter into it

-Discover the grace that is yours by way of your feminine nature

-How this grace is the solution to the problems of our day and time

-The ways in which this grace will bring you and your loved ones healing, hope, and new life

-Why this grace changes the world around you and the very air you breathe

May your heart sing with the delight of the Fiat and may your soul burn with the ember of divine love.

Join us! The Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come!'

We raise children, grandchildren, horses, dogs, gardens and flowers. We lead and serve in other music groups in our churches, Catholic and Protestant, traditional and charismatic. What has brought us together is a desire to serve the body of Christ with the gifts of worship the Lord has given us. We strive not to perform but share a gift of passionate worship, bringing those we minister to into the Lord’s presence. “Living Praise” is a Music Ministry Worship Team founded on the call to worship the Lord through song and praise.We strive to bring an inspiring spirit of worship wherever we sing, inviting all to become “living praise” for the Lord with us. Though some of our members have sung and worshipped together for nearly 25 years, the group’s formal ministry began in 2000 providing worship for women’s conferences at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Since then, Living Praise has ministered to over 20,000 at churches, revivals, retreats and other Christian conferences and events. We have provided worship music for numerous Diocesan Women’s Events including the Dioceses of Steubenville, Pittsburgh, Greensburg, Youngstown, Altoona, and the Archdiocese of Detroit.
