Deadline to register for diocesan Women and Men’s Conference extended

EASTON, Mass. — The deadline to register for the 2018 Women and Men’s Conference in the Fall River Diocese has been extended to Wednesday, March 7!

The conference will take place on Saturday, March 10, in the Ames Sports Complex on the grounds of Stonehill College in Easton.

Building on last year’s first-ever such event in the diocese, the 2018 Women and Men’s Conference will again feature nationally-noted speakers, prayer, music, Reconciliation, Adoration, and Mass. In addition, this year’s conference will include a separate track of presentations for young adult attendees, ages 18 to 30.

Speakers will be Father Dave Dwyer, CSP, who is host of SiriusXM Radio’s “The Busted Halo Show”; Sister Marie Paul Curley, FSP, an author, blogger and multi-media producer; Father Tony Ciorra of Connecticut’s Sacred Heart University, who is a leading expert in Catholic Spirituality; and ValLimar Jansen, a Christian music singer and inspirational speaker who offered a stirring musical and dramatic presentation last year.

Doors open for the conference at 9 a.m. The program will get underway at 10 a.m. and include a midday break with lunch, and time to visit the many vendors that will be on hand.

Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., will be principal celebrant and homilist of a 4 p.m. Mass to conclude the conference.

“I am looking forward to gathering with members of our diocese for our second Women and Men’s Conference,” said Bishop da Cunha. “There will be great talks from dynamic presenters, opportunities for prayer and reflection, the celebration of Mass, music, and more. In this Lenten season, the conference offers a wonderful opportunity to help us prepare for the celebration of Holy Week and Easter.”

Registration for the conference may be done online or via mail. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available.
