Women of the Archdiocese are invited to the inaugural Archdiocesan Women's Conference. The day promises to be one of inspiration and information for Catholic women. 

"The role of women in the Church is not only maternity; the mother of the family, but it’s stronger: it is, in fact, the icon of the Virgin, of Our Lady, the one who helps the Church grow!" said Pope Francis when returning from Brazil.

Teresa Tomeo, author, syndicated Catholic talk show host, and motivational speaker; Therese Polakovic, Founder and Executive Director of the study program Endow; and Cheridan Sanders of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation will be speaking.

The B.C. Catholic will be running a women's special celebrating the women of our archdiocese in its issue dated Nov. 4.

The conference will be held Nov. 23 from 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. More information and tickets to the conference are available online.
