Jesus Christ, Yesterday,

Today & Forever.

“The Suffering you are experiencing because of the coronavirus is a reason for prayer and human closeness, especially while we are all practicing social-distancing. It is also the reason for Christian hope, even in these moments, God is speaking to us.

 

These words of the Pope are a balm to the soul. Please join us in our prayers for all the families and people who are part of and attend the conference. A Saturday and Sunday mass from the Conference has been posted to keep fresh in your memory the community that is present in the Midwest Catholic Family Conference.

Because of the current situation in our world, we are not opening up registration at this time.  We are keeping abreast of the changes and will update you as decisions are made.  Know our prayers are with you all. 

Please stay home, stay safe and stay connected.

Dear Friends of the Catholic Family Conference,

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that the 21st Annual Midwest Catholic Family Conference that was scheduled to be held August 7-9, 2020 in Wichita, Kansas is cancelled.

The current situation with COVID-19 and the uncertainty of the future is the driving force behind this decision.

Throughout the year we have monthly bills and because of your generosity, we usually have some funds left over to help us make it through until attendee registrations and vendor booth registrations open for the next year. We have had some thin years, however this year we actually have a deficit at this time. We have delayed opening registration because of the pandemic. Now we will not be holding the conference, so no registration or vendor income.

We are hanging on to try and bring this beautiful conference back for August 6-8, 2021. Meanwhile, we have monthly bills that must be paid, storage, phone service, and others. We still have pending bills from last year’s conference and even some payments to secure future speakers.

We know everyone is struggling at this time, but there is a real possibility that we will not be able to bring the conference back in 2021 without your financial help. We continue with the hope to have this great blessing in our lives, these great speakers, and this wonderful community, our Catholic Family Conference family. We know everyone is struggling at this time. You can help.

You can help us not only balance our account but secure the future of the conference. If every family could give $20, that would help us confidently plan for a 2021 conference. If you financially can, please give a little more for those that can’t at this time.

If you cannot give financially at this time, please remember us in your prayers so we can continue this great conference. If you know of someone who has not gotten this message and might be able and willing to help, please pass this on!

Please know that we are working on an idea to help spiritually enrich you this summer. We will keep you updated.

May God bless you all in this very troubling time. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.

 

Sincerely, The Midwest Catholic Family Conference Committee

Pray with us.

O’ Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.

You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Please prayerfully consider a gift at this time.
