8th Annual Syracuse Catholic Women's Conference
Saturday, October 28, 2017
8:45AM – 5:15PM
In Search of a Servant’s Heart” is the theme for the 2017 Catholic Women’s Conference set for Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Oncenterin Syracuse. Speakers for the one-day conference are Rev. Michael Gaitley, best-selling author of books about Marian consecration; Sr. Ignatia Henneberry, a campus minister, and Michael Dopp, a leader in the New Evangelization. The conference will feature the United Nations International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of the World Apostolate of Fatima. The statue’s custodian, Judy Studer, recently traveled with the statue to the United Nations on May 12 for a commemorative event on the “Centenary of Fatima and the Enduring Relevance of Its Message of Peace.” The statue and Studer were welcomed at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on May 13, the 100th anniversary of the first apparition in Fatima, Portugal. First class relics of Sts. Jacinta & Francisco Marto, canonized by Pope Francis on May 13, and a piece of the holm-oak tree on which Our Blessed Mother appeared in 1917 will accompany the statue at the conference. Registration opens on July 29. For more information, visit www.syracusecatholicwomen.org.
