Women Together

Join the women of St. Paul’s Cathedral for guest speakers and discussions on what it means to be a Christian woman in a diverse world. Together we seek to deepen our faith as we interact with the world and explore the challenges women everywhere face in their daily lives. We invite theologians, professors, authors, and artists to present on a wide range of topics. All women are welcome!

Women Together at St. Paul’s meets on the first Thursday of the month from October – May (except January), in a hybrid format: both in-person in the Great Hall and online over Zoom.
