The Catholic Seniors’ Conference held on Saturday, February 24 was a great success! The conference was held at St. Matthew Church & McDonald Center. There were 288 attendees, many of whom expressed their gratitude for such an event!
Archbishop Gustavo began the day with Mass. His homily stressed the importance of seniors’ prayers and wisdom. The attendees completed evaluation forms that included positive comments on how the CSC inspired and encouraged them. One participant wrote: “The value of coming to this conference encouraged me to continue to grow in my faith, even at 86!” The opportunity for confession was also offered. One person shared that it had been many years since they had received this Sacrament of Reconciliation!
The speakers’ presentations have been added to our website. Please share this with others.
Toward next year’s conference, we plan to emphasize that all ages are welcome. Many seniors need their children and grandchildren, or neighbors and friends, to provide transportation so that they can benefit from this encouraging event. Stay tuned to our website & email list for updates!
