The goal and mission of the Among Women podcast is to celebrate the beauty and grace that women experience in their Catholic faith and life. Hosted and produced by Pat Gohn since March 2009, Among Women centers not only on faith sharing among women, but faith building… inspiring women in their call to holiness by encouraging them to draw closer to Christ and the Catholic Church.
The show’s name comes from a phrase found in the prayer of the “Hail Mary”. Mary, the Mother of God, is the show’s patron.
The program features two segments: The first is “Blessed Are They”, a reflection focusing on faithful women who have gone before us — saints and sages who bring inspiration to Christian life. The second segment, “Among Women” features conversations with contemporary women from all walks of life… from women with PhDs in theology, to our neighbor in the pew, from authors and bloggers to educators, from lay women to religious sisters, from wives and mothers to singles and widows. Together we share the spiritual wealth and wisdom and mentoring — that feminine genius — that is found in a special way when we gather “among women.”
