Collinsville parish to hold Women’s Day 2019

Collinsville — The ladies of Ss. Peter and Paul Parish in Collinsville invite you to Women’s Day 2019: “Prove it, God! And he did.” The event will be held Saturday, Aug. 10 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the parish fellowship hall, 207 Vandalia in Collinsville.

Nationally known speaker Patty Schneier will be on hand to describe her journey of discovery, repentance and renewal. The presentation will be enlivened by the strong sense of God’s presence, the power of his Word, and the amazing way he worked to bring a “cafeteria Catholic” to conversion. Through song, Scripture, and journal writing, Schneier will share the story of her challenge to God and his daily response.

Schneier speaks at parishes and Catholic conferences, sharing her personal testimony. She has been a guest on EWTN and various Catholic Radio shows. She hosts a weekly radio show to promote vocations called the Pearl of Great Price. Her book, Love letters from Mom on What Matters Most, is a compilation of personal letters written to her children as they mature into adulthood and venture out on their own. She has received a variety of awards.

Registration is $20 per participant and includes lunch. Lunches must be pre-registered by Aug. 1. Attendees must be 14 or older and will have the opportunity to shop among many vendors. Register online at or by calling the parish office at (618) 345-4343.
