Committee for the Enrichment of Women in the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia
This Committee will make available to women of all ages programs designed to deepen one’s faith, foster personal spiritual growth and increase understanding of the social issues and challenges facing today’s women and families.
To best serve the needs of the Archeparchy’s women, we encourage the women of your parish to complete and return the survey. Although they need not disclose their names, we do, however, encourage each woman to identify the parish of which she is a member.
Thank you for your cooperation in this endeavor. We assure you that the women’s responses will in no way be shared beyond this Committee.
