Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) is a private juridic person of the Catholic Church, established in the Archdiocese of Denver. As a Catholic educational program, Endow brings women together to discover their God-given dignity and to understand their role in humanizing and transforming society. Endow utilizes small study groups, conferences and retreats to cultivate faith, fellowship and formation.
Endow provides women with a forum through which to explore and understand what it means to be a feminine person created in God’s image. As a basis for discovery, Endow promotes the New Feminism, which is defined by Pope John Paul II. The New Feminism recognizes and affirms the “true genius of women” and responds to our culture’s desperate need for an authentic feminine presence in every aspect of life and society.
Endow educates and inspires women through small study groups and engages the intellect of the “woman in the pew.” By providing knowledge and fellowship in an intimate group setting, Endow also fosters a sense of belonging and gives women an opportunity to deeply understand and personalize the faith that draws us together and the fellowship that keeps us together. Both faith and fellowship are integral to our formation as women. Endow attracts women from all walks of life and helps women realize that, no matter what they “do” in life, they all share a common desire for love and respect. Although society places a high priority on a person’s skill, appearance and usefulness, Endow teaches women that their dignity originates from their personhood.
