H3O - Offering a hand, a heart and a ray of hope
A Women’s Ministry
Offering a Hand, a Heart and a ray of Hope
H3O is a women’s ministry that welcomes women of all ages and faith backgrounds. We are a group of women who seek to enrich our lives through new and old friendships, the love of Christ and the sacredness of trust.
The H3O core values of connections, community, challenge and Christ seek to inspire each woman and appeal to her desire to grow spiritually, socially and/or through community outreach and volunteerism.
We connect through monthly socials, a prayer group, faith-sharing gatherings, retreats and community outreach projects. H3O welcomes you to attend as many events as you wish.
Come as a stranger and leave as our friend! Everyone is welcome!

“Heart Strings Café”… Where Every Heart Can Share,
Every String is a Different Color and a Different Voice
Share the everyday experiences that shape your life and nourish your heart in an environment of sacred trust. Small group discussions and personal meditation will reflect upon life experiences through Christ’s teachings. Following light refreshments and a brief devotional or DVD in this café style setting, women will have ample time to share in small circles, with guided questions to help spark conversations.
This year H3O presents "Seasons of Your Heart", Prayer and Reflections a blend of scripture-based readings, reflections and poetry based on the work of Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB. Sr. Macrina is a well-known speaker and auther whose work is rich with the influence of her monastic tradition. Through the year, each month, we will read and respond to each season's call.
