Welcome to Our Community

more of what women are

We bring together Catholic women to cultivate our minds and build community in order to restore authentic femininity, the home and heart of society.

Why the Feminine Project?

Our world is hurting.

A quick look at Instagram or, worse yet, the news, shows us that people are confused and angry.

We are meant for so much more!

As women, we have a unique ability to help heal the hurts of our society. 

My name is Ann Burns and I started the Feminine Project to bring women together to learn, grow, and build a community based on our God-given gifts. 

I hope you join me on this journey of healing! Please reach out with your thoughts and I’ll get right back to you.

Responding to a Church in Crisis

Responding to a Church in Crisis

All our earthly accomplishments and pursuits culminate in dust, but the things of God are eternal. It is not about the horizontal— the confusion, the frustration, our own likes and dislikes, it’s about God. It is always about the vertical. And no matter what happens, we can always come back to that Truth.

“To glorify God is the primary purpose of the Holy Mass.”
— Dietrich von Hildebrand

A lot of people have been arguing over the mass lately. And many of those arguments consist of “I prefer” and “these people are…”.

There are broken people in all communities. There are people who reject Church doctrine, people who pick and choose what they think works best for them, and people whose hearts have been devoured by zeal. There are those who live their Faith according to particular influencers and reject all other teachers due to personal preference. But all of this is a lack of discernment, a lack of faith, a lack of formation, and an inordinate focus on the horizontal as opposed to the vertical: God.

When we lose sight of God, despair and uneasiness take root in our hearts. God is bigger than all our problems combined.

And our job is to simply give Him glory.

That Unattainable Something Else: Why a Woman’s Mystery is More Important than You Think

All the same, retaining an air of mystery in an overly-informed culture is radical. Society practically praises over-sharing as a virtue. People jubilantly tout “they have nothing to hide” and proceed to share all kinds of intimate details with whomever.
Yet, it’s not about having (or not having) something to hide, but rather acknowledging that some things are meant to be sacred. Some things are meant to be private. And some things are meant to be saved and only given to certain people.
And of course, the basic but forgotten truth, that some things are simply not your business.
But what has this to do with women specifically?

I absolutely love The Feminine Project! Helps me see how beautiful and important femininity is.

The Feminine Project is the gateway to a community where true feminity is encouraged, not disparaged. In today’s world the truly feminine characteristics that have allowed women to effectively mold societies for centuries are thrown out as archaic, pathetic, or the result of the oppressive patriarchy. The Feminine Project embodies the antidote – embracing our true feminine gifts, encouraging us to be who God made us to be so we can set the world ablaze.

The Feminine Project is so needed for all women, especially now. When the beauty and the role of the feminine nature are being attacked and redefined, this group serves as a beacon to the true nature of women. A project started as a small idea to help empower women to their true and beautiful selves, it has grown to serve so many women and uplift them. The resources provided here are a gift for women of all walks to be encouraged and to find true friendship amongst each other.
