Apostolic Blessing of Pope Benedict XVI for all members.

Having completed our Conferral of Degrees on November 6th 2011, we are now an official circle of the Daughters of Isabella! We continue to accept members at our monthly meetings and are welcoming Catholic women over the age of 16 who are in good standing with the Church. This includes undergraduate and graduate students, university faculty/staff, parishioners at St. Paul's Church, and Catholic women within the greater Boston area--especially alumnae and young-adult professionals.

In order to join, you must meet the criteria listed above and then simply fill out an application for membership, which includes a $5 application fee. After the induction, members will be encouraged to attend monthly meetings and take advantage of the opportunities the Daughters offer. We know that life gets quite busy around campus, so we want the required events to be few.

The spiritual benefits of membership are many, including a personal Apostolic Blessing from Pope Benedict XVI, a Plenary Indulgence at the hour of death for members and their families, Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and Holy Rosaries and Votive Masses offered daily, across the globe, for all members and their loved ones.

There will be many opportunities to immerse oneself in Catholic community through the Daughters of Isabella at St. Paul Parish, including Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (Extraordinary and Ordinary Forms), trips to local Catholic shrines, such as the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy (Stockbridge, MA), visits to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, service projects at Cambridge Rehabilitation & Nursing Center (formerly Vernon Hall Nursing Home), movie nights, socials, bible study and prayer; moreover, we plan to discuss key topis of interest to women, such as learning about Catholic teaching on dating, chastity, natural family planning, and much more.

"It is not to remain in a golden ciborium [or monstrance] that He comes
down each day from Heaven, but to find another Heaven,
the Heaven of our soul in which He takes delight."
- St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Doctor of the Church
