Participation in the Grail is very flexible. One can be involved for a certain period or for life. It is always an involvement with others, whether professional or familiar.
The activities are developed both as a group or individually, involving other women outside of the movement.
The Grail is an ecumenical movement, participating in the evolution of contemporary theological thought, from liberation theology to that created by women aimed at rendering more current and concrete their own search for spirituality.
