Welcome to the Women in Christ site

About Us

We as women – be it mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, cousins, friends, or sisters in Christ – are called by our Triune God and our Lady to be pillars of our families. To be the strongholds of our communities, to unite families and churches in hope under the Head of our Father God, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit (our Triune God).

We are inspired by our Virgin Mary when in humility she agrees to follow God’s will and when she visits her cousin Elizabeth in her hour of need. Mary serves her cousin in all humility for three months until the birth of John the Baptist.

As the Women in Christ based in Gauteng – South Africa, we aim to live like Mary did. We are serving God’s call, His Will. We are here to support and celebrate other women from various walks of life who cross our paths. To live by the truth and in love, grow completely into Christ as the Virgin Mary as our guide.

We are here to journey with and serve young, single, married, divorced, widowed women, mothers or grandmothers from different walks of life, especially in their hour of need. We set up weekend and day retreats that focus on Catholic teachings. Where needed, we provide counselling or guide women to the right place for counselling.


Through the years we have organised various retreats with various themes.

Retreat themes are discerned through prayer.

We invite you to register to join us and Our Lady for a spiritually fulfilling break.

You are also welcome to ‘pay it forward’ for someone who would like to join but is unable to afford it. Alternatively, invite a friend to join you at the retreat.

Retreats are for ladies over 18 years old – young, single, married, divorced, widowed women, mothers or grandmothers from any background and who want to connect with God.

Contact Us

If you would like info about one of our retreats or would like to have counselling from one of our members, please send us your details.


We are constantly looking for ways to help women with info that strengthen their faith in the form of scripture, mass, prayer, sacrifice, examination or counselling, and more.
