A day devoted to our “Future Full of Hope”

The Men’s & Women’s Conference, “A Future Full of Hope” was held last Saturday at our Parish Center  and it was an amazing day! The conference hosted almost 80 men and women from our parish along with several guests from neighboring parishes. It was a day filled with dialogue, prayer, and many spiritual moving moments.

Our keynote speaker, Fr. Mike, gave an excellent presentation centered upon the hope we find in the promises of Jesus Christ. His presentation was a beautifully blended mixture of words, scripture, and song. We want to also thank Joe Spurio, whose music enhanced the spirituality of the day.

Jim Bird spoke at our afternoon session on the Year of St. Joseph. Jim’s presentation helped us become more aware of how St. Joseph is a role model for each of us. His presentation was excellent. He used his sense of wit along with his extensive knowledge of scripture to open our hearts and minds to our relationship with St. Joseph.

A very special thanks to Deacon Bill Bancroft and his wife, Debbie for hosting our breakout sessions and for all the help they gave in the planning of this special day.

The conference would not have been possible without all the men and women who attended. I would like to extend a very special thank you to each of you for your prayers and participation.

Love, Deacon John
