FAQs

Who is this conference for?

This conference is particularly for Millennials and Gen Xer’s who are single, dating, engaged or newly married and are wanting to learn more about building healthy relationships in today’s culture.

What will I encounter?

  • Stimulating speakers, including Kerry Cronin, featured in the recent documentary The Dating Project, who will address current challenges affecting relationships in our culture.
  • Opportunities to explore key topics in St. John Paul II’s book Love and Responsibility, which grew out of his experience with young couples, and discuss their practical application with fellow attendees.
  • Time to pray and socialize with many others who are either single, dating, engaged or newly married and are seeking to live their faith! Along with the sessions and socializing there will be times for Mass, confession and adoration.

What if I’m divorced and don’t have an annulment?

Even if you do not have annulment, attending the weekend for the purpose of strengthening your relationship with God, meeting like-minded people who share your faith, and learning keys to sustaining healthy relationships is a good thing. There is so much to gain from the entire conference experience for those who, for whatever reason, are not looking to date at this time. Our hope is to encourage you in your faith and introduce to you a welcoming community of people. Hopefully the weekend will provide you with some great resources and will inspire you to take that energy back to your local parish.

Understanding the pain that is caused by divorce, we know that choosing to begin the annulment process can be a difficult decision and is very personal. We encourage you to seek out your parish priest or contact your diocesan tribunal office for guidance and to learn more.
