The Among Women podcast celebrates the beauty and grace that women experience in their Catholic faith and life.
Hosted and produced since March 2009, Among Women focuses not only on faith sharing but faith building… inspiring women in their call to holiness by encouraging them to draw closer to Christ and the Catholic Church. Click here to find the latest episodes plus the archives.
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 has an introductory segment, plus two featured 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.
Occasionally, there will be a release of the Among Women Espresso Shot … a shorter version of the podcast, about 12-20 minutes long.
Among Women is also found on Facebook and Twitter at @among_women and @PatGohn. Listeners to the podcast are invited to read “The Back Porch” (Pat’s blog).
