“Be Who God Meant You to Be and You Will Set the World on Fire”
St. Catherine of Siena

Women of all ages are invited to learn how their lives can be transformed through a deeper understanding of their vital role in God’s plan for creation. Presenters will challenge women to discover who God made them to be through topics of embracing the universal call to holiness in daily life and unveiling their unique vocation, as St. Catharine of Siena affirmed when she said, “Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire.” This second annual diocesan women’s conference includes four keynote speakers, exhibitors and opportunities for Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The day will conclude with Holy Mass on the Vigil of the 6th Sunday of Easter celebrated by His Excellency, The Most Reverend Alfred A. Schlert, Bishop of Allentown. A separate Spanish track will be offered. A special session for high school age young women will be offered as part of the day.
