Time Out For Moms (TOFM) is a Catholic enrichment group for women and mothers of all ages.  We offer a fall session (mid-September until December) and a winter session (mid-Janurary until April).  Each session consists of 10 weekly gatherings with women from many parishes and meeting at the Cathedral of the Holy Family Wednesday mornings.   Childcare and breakfast are provided as enriching presentations, sharing and socializing happen in a relaxed and welcoming setting.  In May and June the group meets at local parks around the city.

Time Out for Moms strives to:

  • foster spiritual development
  • encourage a greater understanding of the Catholic Faith,
  • enhance and support Christian living and family life, and
  • provide an opportunity to meet other women from the Catholic community.

Time Out For Moms winter session is underway as of January 22nd, 2020!
