Little Flowers and Little Women

 

Registration is now open for Little Flowers of the Rockies, a Catholic summer camp for Mothers and Daughters.  This weekend camp will be held Friday, June 10 - Sunday, June 12 at Ponderosa Retreat & Conference Center in Larkspur.  Girls will earn two patron saint badges and will have an opportunity to form friendships with members of other Little Flowers and Little Women groups in our state.  Registration forms can be found here. 


Little Flowers Girls’ Club® & Little Women Hospitality Club® are Catholic clubs for girls age 5+ aiming to foster a life of virtue and authentic femininity through scripture, saint stories, skills, and genuine friendships.

 

At St. Benedict, girls age 5-11 are Little Flowers; age 12-18 are Little Women.

Both groups meet 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 6pm, beginning in September.

The Little Flowers program offers five years (wreaths) to complete five flowers as a spiritual bouquet for the Lord.  This year (2021-22) we will be offering Wreath II at St. Benedict.  At our first meeting of the month, we introduce that month’s virtue, flower, and corresponding saint.  At our second meeting, we complete a scrapbook page for the virtue.  Girls earn badges for their Marian blue sash, one petal for each virtue they learn and practice.
This year (2021-22), we will be introducing the Little Women program for young ladies age 12+ at our parish.  These girls will serve as leaders for Little Flowers’ activities, then break off separately for discussions, hands-on learning, movie nights, and a book club.  Girls earn six charms for a bracelet for the feminine skills they learn to practice.

 

 

An annual Mother/Daughter Tea is held for members of both groups in May, and we are proud to host a Divine Mercy Sunday Brunch for our parish family in the Spring.  Traveling to Mary's Garden Party, a Mother/Daughter weekend camp in Indiana, takes place in the Summer.
