Every two years, we come together as a diocese to celebrate the joy and beauty of our Catholic faith. On Feb. 18, you are invited to join us as we dive deeper into what it means to live out our vocations, whether to religious life, married life or single life.
A variety of speakers and panelists will share their wisdom and insight on how to joyfully live our vocation in whatever stage of life we currently find ourselves, and how we can grow in holiness within it. Music for the conference will be provided by Out of Darkness!
All are invited, and families are encouraged to attend together.
