Diocese of Scranton to hold Catholic Women’s Conference June 23

Klein -

SCRANTON — The Diocese of Scranton has partnered with Altus for Women to hold the Catholic Women’s Conference on June 23 in the Byron Complex located on the University of Scranton campus.

This day-long conference, themed “Refresh Your Faith,” is designed for women of all ages, from all faiths and walks of life, to re-energize their faith and their relationship with God. To register, visit dioceseofscranton.org/catholic-womens-conference. Tickets are $40; $50 after June 1. Students pay only $20. Women Religious attend for free.

Renowned author, speaker, radio and television personality Judy Landrieu Klein, the conference keynote speaker, will share first hand the joys and sorrows that have shaped her relationship with God – from her husband’s near-death experience and deathbed conversion to Catholicism to discovering that we must embrace who we are called to be to truly experience God’s love for us. She brings a message of hope, healing and encouragement to those who are suffering.

Musical trio “His Own” strives to inspire women to become all that God has created them to be through their music. Formed by three friends who wanted to combine their love for Jesus, passion for music and desire to proclaim the joy of the feminine heart, His Own hopes to inspire women, to encounter His unique love for them and to be reminded of the eternal measure of their feminine dignity and worth.

Father Richard McAlear’s ministry offers hope, healing, love and peace to people around the world. His teachings and his gift of healing are powerful signs of the healing love of Jesus Christ in today’s fractured world.

Megan Murphy, Catholic teacher, speaker and evangelist, will guide participants through the events of the day with her characteristic warmth, grace, and gentle humor.

The day also includes a special Mass with Bishop Joseph C. Bambera, confessions, lunch, adoration, and time for shopping in the conference marketplace.
