National Catholic Women’s Conference Scheduled for Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa

WINE: Women In the New Evangelization along with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Office for the New Evangelization is inviting women of all ages to the WINE: National Catholic Women’s Conference on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown.

The conference will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. with a welcome from Archbishop Charles Chaput followed by praise and worship music led by emcee Alyssa Bormes (Catholic author and Catholic radio host). Keynote speakers include Teresa Tomeo (Catholic author and host of The Catholic Connection radio show), Kelly Wahlquist (Catholic author and founder of WINE: Women In the New Evangelization), Kitty Cleveland (National singer-songwriter and inspirational speaker), and Sarah Christmyer (Catholic author and speaker) will enliven the spirits of all attendees.

Kelly Wahlquist, a Catholic author from Minneapolis and founder of the WINE initiative, says the movement is a response to the call by Pope Francis to share the joy of the Gospel. She says it’s open to women of all ages – from teens to seniors. “My hope is that they find that joy in the relationship with others and they see that they’re not alone on this journey, that there’s always someone walking right by them, in their pain, in their struggles, in their triumphs, someone celebrating with them,” Wahlquist says, “And that they leave that day with a renewed conviction to live their faith with confidence and hope.”
