The conference will be held in a modified format this year to provide for current COVID-19 related health and safety guidelines. Participants are invited to attend one or both shortened conferences – morning and/or afternoon.  

The morning session will feature keynote speaker, Lisa Brenninkmeyer, founder of Walking with Purpose, followed by a Eucharistic Holy Hour with Divine Mercy Chaplet sung by Tonya Dorsey and the God’s Men chorus. Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez will preside.

The afternoon session will feature Mother Clare Matthias, CFR, Mother Superior of the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal, followed by a Eucharistic Holy Hour with Taize Chant sung by the Sisters of Life. Reverend Gerald Dennis Gill, Director of the Archdiocesan Office for Divine Worship, will preside over the Holy Hour.

Participants are invited to enjoy four virtual video presentations at home. All talks in English will be interpreted in American Sign Language. The Spanish track will be held at Holy Innocents Parish in Philadelphia to reduce crowd sizes smaller and to allow more individuals to attend in-person sessions. More information regarding the Spanish track can be found here.

Editor’s Note: The Catholic Women’s Conference is a unique event designed for all Catholic women – married, single, and consecrated.  The mission of the conference is three-fold: to invite women into a personal and transformative encounter with Jesus Christ, to form women in the truth about their feminine genius, and to equip women to be a leaven for the world, living their feminine gifts in service to the family, the Church and all aspects of society.
