Discover the Gift Summary

Thank you for attending Discover the Gift! 

Our online event saw more than 1900 women from around the world tune in to receive the gift that they are, realize the gifts they’ve been given, and respond with the gifts only they can give. We are in awe of the Lord’s work, and look forward to seeing how the fruits continue to develop!

The talks and prayers from Discover the Gift will remain public on our Youtube channel, so you can re-watch or share these important messages whenever you want. You can dive deeper into that message, “receive the gift that you are, realize the gifts you’ve been given, and respond with the gift only you can give,” with real-life discussion groups of women you know by using a Discover the Gift small group guide. 

You can order Discover the Gift small group guides to facilitate a seven week discussion of the Discover the Gift keynotes with your group. The guides also include two exclusive bonus talks by Sister Mary Madeline, OP and Executive Director Rachel Ullmann that are not available to the public.

After participating this week, you’re part of the GIVEN Network! There are thousands of Catholic female leaders just like you who you can stay involved with for professional connection and personal community. Here are some of the best ways you can stay involved: 

  • Follow GIVEN on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube
  • Host or attend an Our Lady of Guadalupe party in your area. These special GIVEN Gatherings will happen all over the country on December 12 and bring together local communities of Catholic female leaders to honor OLG! Save the date, and look out for more information coming soon.

The GIVEN Institute (“GIVEN”) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to activating the gifts of young adult women for the Catholic Church and the world. 

We inspire and equip the next generation of female leaders to “receive the gift that they are; realize the gifts they’ve been given; and respond with the gift that only they can give.”

Through leadership training, faith formation, and dedicated mentoring, GIVEN forms women for mission and for life.
