WOSA is a member chapter of Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America (AOCWNA), founded in 1973 through the vision of His Eminence Metropolitan PHILIP (Saliba) as an organization of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.
One of the first organization to finalize plans for the icon they will sponsor, the Women of Saint Andrew, has chosen four saints to be depicted who exude what we all aspire to be. The four women chosen are Saints Perpetua, Felicitas, Nonna and Macrina the Younger. These women saints were wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, servants and leaders. They provide examples for the Women of Saint Andrew, and indeed everyone else, at every stage of life.
