Leah Darrow, Catholic speaker and former contestant on America’s Next Top Model

Have you ever heard the parable of the Prodigal Son? Leah shares her story of being a “prodigal daughter” as a reality TV contestant on America's Next Top Model and a professional model in New York City who thought she had it all.

“We Are A Living Cup of Blessing”

Rev. Benjamin Berinti, C.PP.S., D. Min., Pastor of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church

Imagine that each of us is a “living cup of blessing,” continuously being filled by God and poured out in service of God and neighbor.  Like the sacred cup which holds the Blood of Christ at each Eucharist, we too are anointed, filled, and emptied by God. This is particularly true for spouses, who give themselves to each other completely, even as they receive each other in love and truth, and avail themselves of God’s grace through the Sacrament of Marriage.

"A Love that Spreads the Gospel"

Arland K. Nichols, President, St. John Paul II Foundation

Have you ever seen "that family" that evangelizes without saying a word, simply through their example of love and joy? No doubt, even the happiest family is not perfect, and we must avoid unhealthy comparisons. Yet, the Church makes available to us through the closely linked Sacraments of Matrimony and of the Eucharist the grace to start - today - to enter more deeply into the joy of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. In this talk, Mr. Nichols will present these basic ideas of the Church in an accessible way, pointing to practical ways that spouses at any point in their spiritual journey can bring each other, their family, and their community closer to Jesus—growing in joy and peace along the way.
