Meet one of our 6 DYNAMIC speakers: Sister Miriam James Heidland, SOLT!
Sr. Miriam is a member of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity. She graduated from the University of Nevada on a volleyball scholarship and, in a moment of radical conversion, heard Jesus call her to be His bride. Through engaging media, personal stories, and the beauty of Church teaching, Sister Miriam James strives to bring the power of God’s love to life in the hearts of those to whom she speaks. Sr. Miriam James will give the following talks to the adult conference: The Healing Power of Christ (breakout option), Authentic Love, and Sister will also be speaking to the high school and middle school conference attendees!

CD of the Month We have several new cd’s in the Narthex display case! You might be interested in My Beloved Son: Meditations for Lent by Fr. Robert Barron.
Fr. Robert Barron offers five sermons on the spiritual discipline we must cultivate in the Lenten season, a discipline centered in Christ. These meditations cover topics such as finding our identity in God, prayer as the key to mission, our thirst for God, how to end our alienation from God, and how to joyfully embrace the way of happiness.
