March is here! That means spring is right around the corner! It is also Women’s History Month. It marks a month for recognizing important women who have changed the face of history. Let’s look at some of the important women in our lives, in our lifetime, and those who have paved the way before us. There are so many influential women in the Bible- some commonly remembered as well as those less known, but just as important. This month in RE, we will explore the world’s important women, both ones we know and admire, as well as some we’ll learn more about!

Who will you remember this month? We will be creating a board in the Parish Hall to hold up women who are important to us! All are encouraged to come by and add names, photos, pictures, etc. of women who have made an impact on the world or in our individual lives. For more information or questions, reach out to Lora at
