At twelve she joined her family band, playing festivals and churches, with her sister Justina. The bluegrass duo was billed as the Miller Sisters.

Friday Evening:

The evening opens at 6:00 p.m.


An outstanding line-up of presenters.  Details for the day are currently being planned.  Our 2016 Speakers and Schedule will be finalized soon.

Speakers Panel:

Saturday afternoon's schedule ends with Fr. John Lanzrath moderating the Speakers’ Panel Discussion, a popular feature of the Conference. Conference speakers answer questions submitted from the audience. Each speaker gives unique insight into the challenges of being a faithful Catholic in today's secular world. The discussion also is an opportunity to learn how to effectively explain and defend the Catholic doctrine and beliefs.

Saturday Evening:

Those children who have made their First Communion this year are invited to participate in the formation of the Procession near the Blessed Sacrament.  The Conference emcees will announce the time and location for those children participating in the Eucharistic Procession to assemble. Girls who plan to participate are asked to bring and wear their First Communion dress.  Cassocks will be provided for the boys.  To notify us that your child will be participating or for more information, click here.


Another outstanding line-up of presenters. 

Respectful Dress Requested:

You are asked to "dress up" for the Lord, particularly at Mass. Clean, comfortable and covering, but not clinging, clothing is desirable. Clothes reflect attitude. Attitude dictates behavior. We appreciate your cooperation. Read more about Midwest Catholic Family Conference Details
