Looking For Direction?

Are you desiring guidance in living a life of union with Christ through prayer, acesis, and the sacraments, but you experience a problem in finding a guide that is learned, experienced, and available to journey with you?

Are you frustrated and saddened by the lack of formation, resources, and opportunities as you seek to be configured to our Lord and supported in His loving call for you?

In the midst of this noisy world and without support, are you tempted to lose sight of your identity, your Lord, and your place in the mystery of salvation?

We Are Here to Help

Mary and Elizabeth offers services of individual spiritual direction, formation, outreach, and retreats by trained missionaries and a network of trained directors with extensive experience in accompanying women.

It is our hope that every woman who has desire and intent may have the resources and opportunities to be guided, affirmed, and supported in her interior renewal and personal preparation toward configuration of her person to that of Our Lord Jesus and the Blessed Virgin, the highest expression of the ‘feminine genius; and a source of constant inspiration.’

“I offer you my prayer and word of support as you venture into a new work, the Mary and Elizabeth House. This Center has the potential to serve the women of the Diocese in a new and powerful way, bringing much needed direction and care to those seeking a deeper discipleship in the Lord Jesus.”

– Very Rev. David Talley, Bishop of Memphis
