Background

The ultimate goal is to involve all faith groups in the crafting of the annual conference. The program allows women of faith to examine the ways that different religious affiliations shape a person’s view of the world and opinions on contemporary issues. The conference is sponsored and supported by groups and congregations from all over St. Louis and is planned by an independent steering committee of women from a variety of faiths.
