“I have seen organizations succeed with minimal board involvement (emotional, financial, operational) because of the investment of those running day-to-day operations.  I have seen organizations with concerned, engaged boards without good operations management and those organizations, for all of their good intentions, struggle to get things done.  Sacred Threads is fortunate to have both a committed board and hard-working and inspiring management.  I was impressed with the board and management two years ago and, as Sacred Threads has grown, I continue to be impressed.  The board knows how to ask the right questions and also how to step back and let Rosemary and Marie manage and guide Sacred Threads.

Sacred Threads has a clear mission and a strong identity.  To their credit, the board and management actively use those as criteria for decision-making. Non-profits exist to make an impact on society.  Gauging, measuring that impact, is a tremendous challenge, especially when your focus is on the spiritual dimension of human lives.  Sacred Threads has taken up that challenge and is working to find ways to measure how they impact their clients”.

- Robert Adams, Consultant


“It was a joy to participate in Sacred Threads Lecture Series at Regis College on October 3, 2013. As a speaker, I never know how an audience will react to my message about dignity. The audience that Sacred Threads attracted was one of the most welcoming, attentive, and open-minded groups of people I have ever encountered. It gave me hope and renewed inspiration that there are many of us out there who care deeply about creating a world where we can all live together with our dignity intact. Bravo to Sacred Threads for giving us an opportunity to discuss matters of such importance to us all.”

- Donna Hicks



The mother's group at Sacred Threads is my monthly sanctuary where I get to nourish myself physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. My body takes a break from running after a toddler or holding my infant or doing both at the same time! My mind rests from the constant multi-tasking of raising kids, working, home upkeep, etc. I connect with wonderful women who are friends and companions on this ever-changing, joyful, and demanding journey called motherhood. And yes, we talk about God, we take time for some reflection and prayer. But more than anything, simply being part of this circle of support and putting aside the time to come together--for ourselves as individuals and for each other as a whole--that, in itself, is prayer, the reminder that our loving God is amidst us and beside us in our daily lives.

- Bernardine Ileto




“Imagine a space, and a circle of friends, that would encourage you to become more fully the person you truly are, and to weave that unique strand of personhood into the unfolding tapestry of the whole human story. Such a space would be warm, welcoming, challenging, inspiring – and real! It would be grounded in everyday life, yet suffused with the presence of the sacred. Where might there be such a space? Somewhere over the rainbow? Or perhaps on your own doorstep. Sacred Threads is exactly such a space, right in the heart of the city. It is my joy and privilege to have been touched by its life-giving energy, and to invite you to add your own journey’s thread into this sacred weaving.”

- Margaret Silf, noted author
  and retreat director




“Telling the Story Another Way”, Sister Joan Chittister’s compelling and profound program was one path that reflected the spirit of this fine organization. Sacred Threads gathers us to push the edge on the old, inspire the new and connect us as empowered women sharing our visions.”

- Maya Balle, MCC, CPCC

“At a time when many people experience disconnection and disorientation, Sacred Threads provides a creative oasis where searching souls can come home to a place of deeper truth and more enduring hope.”

- Diarmuid O’Murchu

  OUR VISION: We create together what we need based on new models of inclusion, collaboration & empowerment.
