Mary, Reconciler of All Peoples and Nations/18th Annual Conference October 30-November 1

We are pleased to announce the speakers for our 18th Annual Conference. We are honored to have the Most Reverend Thomas John Paprocki, Bishop of the Diocese of Springfield  in Illinois as a keynote speaker on Saturday, Oct. 31st. He will join our Retreat Master, Fr. Bill Casey, CPM. Fr. Casey is a much sought after speaker that will preach the truth without  hesitation. He is a dynamic and powerful speaker who is sure to fortify you in the faith. The Apostles of the Interior Life have been a part of the conference since 2000 and we are pleased to welcome them again this year. Their youthful and exuberant zeal for the Catholic faith will lift you up and encourage you to seek a deeper spiritual life. Our pastor, Fr. Barry Harmon will speak about his recent pilgrimage to Betania, Venezuela.


Featured Guests:

The Family of Servant of God Maria Esperanza and Betania Foundation Members will join us this year. They will give insight into the life of their mother and her many spiritual gifts. They will speak about the Betania Foundation which was set up by Maria Esperanza to promote family unity and reconcilation. When the Blessed Mother appeared in Betania, she came as Mary, Virgin and Mother, Reconciler of All Peoples and Nations. Mary's message of family unity and reconcilation is very much needed in a world that is tearing at the very fabric of the family. They will be joined by Fr. Tim Byerley, Vice-Postulator for the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Maria Esperanza.

One of the highlights of last years conference was a performance of the Betania Choir. They will perform again this year and are sure to raise the roof with their incredible talent.


Healing the Family Tree - Fr. Lou Cerulli

November 21-22, 2015  

Experience the power of God's love and the healing power of the Eucharist through the Peace, Freedom and Healing Ministry founded by Fr. Lou Cerulli.  We facilitate and create a safe and trusting environment where people feel comfortable openning their hearts to the Lord and come to know Him in a more profound way.   Participants are then given an opportunity to encounter the living Christ present to them in their deepest need.

The resulting peace, freedom and healing experienced in this encounter empowers us to go in the peace of Christ to love and serve God and one another.  We are empowered to be Church for each other, to radiate Christ into the world.  Read more at fatherlou.com



Our Lady's Role in Spiritual Warfare-Fr. Chad Ripperger

December 4-5, 2015 

Fr. Chad Ripperger, retreat master, will teach us how important the role of Mary, Virgin Most Powerful, is in the fight against spiritual warfare. Conceived without sin, she is the only person ever created who cannot be defeated by evil. She is a most powerful intercessor and protector.

Prayer to Mary, Help of Christians

Mary, most powerful Virgin,
You are the mighty and glorious Protector of the Church.
You are the marvelous Help of Christians.
You are awe-inspiring as an army in battle array.
You have destroyed heresy in the world.
In the midst of our anguish, our struggle and our distress
defend us from the power of the enemy,
and at the hour of our death receive our soul into heaven. Amen.   (St. John Bosco
