Activities for Women, Young Women and Girls

Each year, thousands of women -- young and old, from a wide variety of ethnic, religious and professional backgrounds - take advantage of retreats, conferences, classes, schools, camps, service projects, student residences and other activities offered through centers of Opus Dei or by faithful of the Prelature of Opus Dei. Below we list links to Opus Dei-affiliated conference centers, schools and centers in the United States. There are many and varied activities going in many parts of the United States. Contact a location near you to find out what's available. We also include below links to general Opus Dei sites in case you would like more information about the prelature or St. Josemaría Escrivá.
