The Father’s Beloved: Conference fills women with joy

Women of all ages shared a day of inspiration and prayer during the Women’s Conference in June. They were treated to keynote speeches from Jennifer Fulwiler and Barbara Heil, a special lunch, breakout sessions to learn more about their faith, and shopping throughout the day.

Mass, adoration and confession provided opportunities to deepen their relationship with the Father, to whom they offered the day.

The conference was sponsored by the Adult Discipleship and Evangelization and Marriage, Family, and Respect Life offices of the Sioux Falls Diocese.

The gathering was a joyful celebration of the gifts women bring to the Church and the world. Watch for information in the future for next year’s Women’s Conference.
