“Marriage, Family, and the Virtue of Love”
Mary Caprio, St. John Paul II Foundation

Am I loving my spouse well?  What does true love look like?  Love and marriage were given to us from the beginning as a “way” to the Father.  Am I living this vocation well?  How does the sacrament of marriage assist me to love in this way?  This talk will explore the purpose and meaning of this particular and exceptional call to love.

"Standing Strong as Parents"
Dr. Ray Guarendi, Clinical Psychologist

Parents today are having their confidence, peace of mind, and authority undercut by a number of widespread myths that have been pushed upon them by the experts, the media and almost everybody else. Victimized by these false notions, many parents are plagued by groundless worry, guilt and frustration. This presentation will foster self-confidence, peace of mind, and will put authority into your hands where it belongs. 


"Evangelizing as Families: How to Share your Faith with Confidence"
Bert Ghezzi, Catholic Speaker and Author

Patiently removing obstacles that block Catholics from doing evangelization, Bert uses Scripture, the teaching of the popes, and personal testimony to persuade Catholics of their daily responsibility and opportunity to bring relatives, friends, neighbors, and others closer to Christ. The talk is chockfull of practical advice about how families can participate effectively in the New Evangelization.
