Women of Dignity Conference 2014
Transforming the Culture
Never underestimate the impact you can have on the culture around you. Whether it's in the trenches of the workplace, in a volunteer capacity, or in family life, we all leave impressions on others around us. The question is, are we leaving good impressions or are we leaving negative impressions? As members of the Body of Christ, we are called to participate in His mission to draw people to himself. How can we learn to do this in the life and vocation that God has called us to live? Come join us and listen to Barbara J. Elliott provide stories and wisdom from her vast experience in various roles as a mother, teacher, social justice advocate, philanthropist, theologian, philosopher, and, perhaps, most importantly, a follower of Christ.

Go Forth and Proclaim the Good News
"We want this year to arouse in every believer the aspiration to profess the "faith in fullness" and with renewed conviction, with confidence and hope". Pope Benedict XVI
As baptized Catholics we have received the commission to evangelize - we are called to proclaim the Good News to all people, everywhere and at all times. That includes that co-worker, or that fellow student or even your relative who has misunderstandings of what the Church teaches. The Year of Faith is an opportunity for all of us to experience a conversion, a renewal of faith, an opportunity to turn back to Jesus and enter into a deeper relationship with Him. We must get to know Him personally; to encounter Christ in a deeper more meaningful way. We must continue to renew and deepen our faith so that we can share it with others.
