Welcome Letter from Susan Windley-Daoust
We live in a broken, hurting world desperately in need of Jesus Christ.
The Catholic Christian women in this conference are stepping forward to share our stories, insights, and outreach to women and men as to why the power of Jesus Christ is transforming our lives, and will transform yours.
We have been given, and have accepted, a relationship with nothing short of the Lord of the Universe. Our lives are different because we have accepted the grace of that adventure.
Although the speakers are women, this is not a typical “women’s conference.”
It is a conference by sister disciples of Christ for everyone who wants to share the Lord with every person in need. These women know Jesus Christ has redeemed the world and want to share that dynamite with everyone–women and men–who have ever wondered if God really matters.
Womens’ lives have unique challenges and graces that should be drawn upon in the New Evangelization.
- How do we propose Jesus Christ to women and men who are secular feminists?
- How do we offer Christ to every woman and man who has posted “#metoo”?
- How do we offer Christ to every person who has felt unjustly passed over and unheard?
- How to offer Christ to challenged parents, women and men, who ask “where are you, Lord?” in such a difficult time to raise children?
- How do we offer Christ to women who struggle to be “a person for her own sake” in a hypersexualized culture?
If you are wondering if the difference Jesus Christ makes is real, or a bunch of hype, or simply if there is more – join us.
For those who are already in relationship with Jesus Christ in his Church, with the help of the Holy Spirit, we want to equip you to go and tell it on your own mountain: at home, at work, in your town, in the world.
Remember the fullness of the good news. Let it challenge you. Frame it in your own words. Share your story.
And connect with other seekers and evangelists.
We truly hope you’ll join us,
