Learning to Pray Together as Spouses: Three Simple Steps - Saint John Paul II taught that families have a “priestly mission” that includes living a life of prayer together in the home—husband and wife together, parents and children together. Yet, most spouses do not pray outside of the Mass and would likely say they do not know how. In this presentation, Chris will share three simple steps couples can follow to begin or to deepen their prayer life together.
Pope Francis on Encountering Christ as Families and in Prayer - Pope Francis is a person of deep prayer, who encounters Christ daily as he contemplates the Gospels. Some of the fruit of his prayer has included profound reflections on both family and prayer, at times even bringing these two topics together. This presentation will highlight some of Pope Francis’ key themes and comments on family and prayer, by drawing from his various homilies, addresses, and writings.
Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers,
EWTN Host and Global Speaker:
The Domestic Church: A Model for a Culture of Love and Life -This talk will explore family life as the icon of God’s life in the Trinity. You will discover how family life provides sacred opportunities for grace, forgiveness and mercy to work, and how husbands, wives, and children must respond in order to form a communion of love and life within the church of the home.
Divine Mercy and Healing: The Power of Forgiveness in the Family - Beginning with his father’s incredible conversion story, Deacon Harold will probe the depths of God’s merciful love to help your family find the forgiveness, healing, and peace that your heart longs for.
Mary Ann Kuharski
Founder and President of Prolife Across America:
What to do when our loved one leaves the faith? - The most often asked question at retreats and conferences. Most Catholic families experience the sorrow of a son/daughter, brother/sister etc. who abandons the faith. I propose patience, mercy, love, and more love.
The Family that Prays together, Plays together, Works and Eats together – stays together” - Family dinnertime has become a “lost art” as “extra curricular and sports” dominate household schedules. Yet, scripture reminds us throughtout of the importance of praying, working and eating together.
Founder and President of “That Man is You”
