What is Altus for Women?

Altus for Women is a Catholic women's ministry in northeast Pennsylvania.  We offer Book Groups and programs that encourage women to "grow in faith". 

What is the mission of Altus?


Altus for Women's mission is twofold:


*  to bring together committed Catholic women from Northeastern Pennsylvania in order to provide them with support, companionship, and spiritual growth through carefully chosen program offerings;


*  and to provide these women with the opportunity to disciple other women in the Truth found in the Teachings of the Catholic Church.

What is the meaning of the word Altus?


Altus is a Latin word that has a number of meanings:  high, deep, profound, deeply-rooted. Our choice of the name Altus for this group reflects our desire "that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; that you, rooted and grounded in love, may have the strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19

What is an Altus Group meeting like?


Altus Groups are designed to refresh and renew!

  Your local Group will meet in a comfortable, convenient location, perhaps a home, a coffee shop, or a parish. Meetings last about two hours and consist of faith-filled prayer, discussion, and sharing, with all participants treated as beloved daughters of God.

What is an Altus Event  like?


Altus Events are also designed to refresh and renew!

  You will find the beauty of the decorations, relaxing candlelight, and delightful treats will restore you.  Using beauty to minister to women is a hallmark of Altus!

You will be treated with warmth, as cherished daughters of God.

You will grow in your faith and develop wonderful relationships with other women.

How is Altus Funded?

Altus for Women does not profit from any of our events or programs. All of the women who serve Altus do so on a voluntary basis.  We do incur expenses: website and domain expenses, decorations, facility rentals, speakers, advertising, etc. Therefore, donations are always welcome! Please speak to Lisa or Tracy about how you can support Altus!
