Celebrating the Jubilee Year of Mercy
Come for a faith-filled and fun family retreat surrounded by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest!
Join in fellowship with others looking to deepen their faith in God. Be inspired by talks which challenge and strengthen us. Soak in the Grace that comes through celebrating the Sacraments. Look to be inspired by so many who have fully given their lives over to serving Christ and His Church.
New this year:
A Day of Mercy - On Saturday, July 16 there will be 12 hours of uninterrupted Confession time. This is a call for all to take advantage of this healing sacrament (you don't have to be registered to come to Mass, Adoration, or Confession - just come!)
Energized praise music on Saturday afternoon with Dennis Zender.
Additional breakout sessions for all to enjoy.
We are welcoming an incredible line-up of dynamic and inspiring speakers...some are new to Faith on Fire, some are returning favorites. All of them share the Gospel with great love. What a great opportunity to soak in the wisdom in their prepared talks as well as enjoy conversation and company with them afterwards.
Make plans to be with us July 15-17 (and if you can only make it one day...we welcome you!)
Who should attend?
This is a family event - we want your family! And bring family friends, too. Let's strengthen and build up our Catholic community together.
If you are a father, mother, daughter, son, uncle, aunt, grandmother, grandfather, grandchild, brother, or sister this conference is for you. If you are single, married, a young adult, a not-so-young adult, a college student, (or not), there will be something for you. If you are Catholic, a fallen-away Catholic, a Protestant, an agnostic, someone just in search of Truth from any religious background (or none at all), please know you are welcome. As a member of the Family of God we all have a place in this Catholic Family Conference. Join us this July 31 - August 2.
What to Expect:
From the speakers’ personal experiences, we’ll receive positive insights on how to address the challenges and pressures we all face today in family, marriage, work, faith, and church. They will guide us in ways to direct our time, thoughts, and energy toward forming a personal relationship with God, and provide insights into how to become better disciples of Christ, going out and evangelizing to the world.
Families of all sizes and ages come to rejuvinate their faith. Expect to be surrounded by warm fellowship, a beautiful and relaxing environment, and others honestly seeking to do the will of God. Come to be encouraged and inspired.
Be sure to bring a blanket or outdoor chair (& sunscreen!) - we will enjoy these talks on the lawn of St. Mary Church (or keep in the shade under the big tent). Say a prayer for the beautiful July weather we love! Check out Conference Basics to learn more.
