Do you want your friendships to be deeper and more meaningful than Facebook “likes”?  

Are you looking for a community of companions to create true spiritual bonds?  

What does it mean to be people of hope, and how does that change our lives and make us more compassionate friends during difficult times?  

Drawing on the cardinal and theological virtues, stories of the saints, and anecdotes from their own friendships, Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet—bestselling authors of Divine Mercy for Moms— will answer these questions and more in this Live Encounter- Friendship Project.  

As an attendee, you will recieve a Guide to making and keeping fabulous, faith-filled friends that will serve as a practical primer for any Catholic seeking fresh ways to reach out to old friends and provide fun suggestions for making new ones. By employing Church teaching and telling us stories of their own friendships and those from the lives of saints and biblical women—including the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Elizabeth, St. Thérèse of Lisieux and her sister Servant of God Léonie, and Sts. Perpetua and Felicity, our hosts will inspire you to seek deeper friendships. Not only will you be drawn closer to friends both new and old but you’ll also be reminded how these friendships—and the virtues you practice to nurture them—draw you closer to God.  

Watch their invitation video!

Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet are dedicated wives, mothers, and volunteers. They are also friends, Catholic speakers, and the coauthors of Divine Mercy for Moms, which continues to inspire women to come together to pray, study, and live in friendship around the Divine Mercy devotion. In the midst of their busy lives, Faehnle and Jaminet found themselves missing their old friends and searching for new ones.

Michele and Emily invite you to the Live Encounter!
