2019 Conferences are being discerned.

What’s Coming

Our staff prayerfully discerns each conference experience, based upon our conversations with the Archdiocesan leaders and their directives, current events, attendee feedback & participation, financial considerations, and many other factors.

In an effort to answer where Pilgrim Center of Hope believes God’s call is directing us, we are aiming to present 2 Catholic Women’s Conferences in 2019, with 1 dedicated to the Southside & urban areas of San Antonio.

Dates selected: April 12-13 and September 20-21. Note that we have not determined which will be North/South, as parish venues are being discerned.

Please join us in praying for this effort. If you would like to volunteer or help sponsor 1 or both events, please contact our Events Coordinator, Nan Balfour.

Prepare Your Heart

The CWC Prayer

Lord Jesus, thank you for the constant love you have for me. Thank you for the gift of life and the gift of faith.

Today, take me into your Sacred Heart and renew my life. I open my heart to your grace, to be healed where healing is needed. Replace any wounds or worries with your peace and joy. Send your Holy Spirit into my life. Guide me to be the woman you have created me to be: your beloved daughter, disciple, and friend. Make me a woman of faith, hope and charity. Please remove any obstacles which keep me from living this way.

Lord, pour out your grace upon this year’s Catholic Women’s Conference, upon the planning efforts, and upon many women – that they may hear your invitation and respond. May the Conference be a time of spiritual renewal, healing, reconciliation and joy for all who attend.

Thank you, Lord Jesus. For all this, I pray in your sweet Name.
Mary, Mother of God, Our Lady of Hope, pray for us.

Hail, Mary…

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is there a fee?

Event costs total approximately $100,000, not including Pilgrim Center of Hope staff hours spent working on this conference for you throughout the year. As a non-profit relying on donations, we associate a cost with registration in order to meet these needs.

However, we truly believe that each woman who feels called to answer our Lord’s invitation, “Come to Me,” should be able to attend. Donations provided by other registrants allow us to invite these women. We are deeply grateful to all who contribute.
