Women are invited to explore the "forever journey" they have shared through the ages during the program "Women Mentoring Women … Seeking and Offering Support as Companions on the Journey" that will be held from 6:30 -- 9:00 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, in the Lighthouse room in St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church, 1500 Brookdale Road, Naperville. Jill Bates, who offers spiritual direction at Mayslake Ministries in Downers Grove and occasional retreats and presentations, will facilitate the discussion. She will trace the mentoring concept among women since Biblical times. "From wandering in the desert with Moses, to the story of Ruth, to the companions on the road to Emmaus, to our life's journey today, we will seek to understand the forever journey of Christian women, together," she says.
