New York City -- A group of women with diverse cultures and different background met at St. Claire's Room of St. Francis of Assisi Church at 31st St. between 6th & 7th Avenue, New York, NY last Wednesday, January 8, 2014 with Fr. Julian Jagudilla OFM, our group adviser.


Among the ladies who came despite the frigid and chilly wind were: Donna Samuel, Rosa Charles, Kathy Gunn, Dorothy Berman, Alexandra Barrau and Grace Baldisseri. 

During the meeting, it was agreed that the group will be called "Women Connecting Women"  as there are a lot of issues that only women can talk about and resolve among themselves. 

Considering the realities of life in New York City, women have issues more than men in their social and economic conditions.

More than these issues are the emotional and domestic problems that come with daily living in this city that never sleeps. After all the traffic, the noise and the high prices everywhere, who could really sleep?

It is commendable to have one big hearted priest in the person of Fr. Julian Jagudilla OFM, who offers the venue of St. Francis of Assisi Church’s Conference Room to bring together women of all colors for a Tea Party on February 12, 2014. The purpose is to have a place for women to connect with other women in New York City.
