Keynote Address (11:15 AM):
To Be Known As God's & As God Knows Us!
We are all called to holiness; saints and sinners. As Christians, we seek to achieve a higher level of spiritual growth and holiness through prayer and contemplation. But our lives consist of striving for the ideal while wrestling with the real. Fortunately, God finds us exactly where we are. All is mercy!
A-1 You’re Better Than Any App!
When it comes to leading others in prayer, apps don’t compare! Nothing beats a personal relationship with a dedicated catechist to touch hearts and bring people to know and love God more.
