Modesty equals self worth says Marcoux

The true nature of beauty and self-respect is enhanced by modest dress.

Young women attend Carmen Marcoux's presentation on modesty.

Mothers and daughters enjoyed a semi-formal afternoon tea with noted Catholic author and speaker Carmen Marcoux at St. Ann's Parish in Abbotsford Sunday, Jan. 15. It was the kick-off of the Modesty for Christ program.

Nearly 70 women and teenage girls gathered in the parish lounge to hear Marcoux discuss modesty and courting.

"You want to be pretty and feminine and beautiful; you don't want to be provocative and sexy," explained Marcoux, a home-schooling mother of nine and grandmother of one from Saskatoon.

"For women, modesty has so much to do with their own value of themselves. It is how they present themselves to the world, the charity they show to guys in dressing modestly, and the dignity that they sense in themselves."
