TESTIMONIALS

“Enlightening, rejuvenating, and deeply touching! I never knew that so many Catholics were so excited about their faith. I’ve got a long way to go, but at least now I know that I’m not alone.”

Tim H.

“This conference gives me such hope for our future and helps me to know my faith more deeply and be less afraid to share it. The speakers are awesome, and I love the music; it lifts our prayer so beautifully! This conference makes me realize what a beautiful gift our Church is.”
