Genesis of Eve Women’s Conference
October 16 – 18, 2020
Our goal is to help women who have a deep yearning desire to find meaning in their lives, to find themselves in their faith, and in their relationship with Christ. So many women have had a life altering encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ at retreats and are running back to Jerusalem with their hearts burning only to get lost in the realities of life and are searching for and needing guidance and direction. Genesis of Eve plans to accomplish these goals and fulfill its mission and purpose through an annual conference as well as making available various opportunities and resources for prayer (an Encounter), intellect (Empower) and service (Evangelize) throughout the rest of the year to keep the fire burning 365 days a year.

Join us for a weekend of spiritual encounter, intellectual empowerment and apostolic evangelization. This year’s conference, “Come to the Well”, will be rooted in our catholic faith, will provide a weekend away from the demands of life and offer spiritual encounter through prayer and testimonies, intellectual empowerment via educational tracks and evangelization via meeting and talking with the women of the diocese.
