Description

The Abide Catholic Women's Conference will take place on February 1st & 2nd, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Who: This conference is for all women 18 years and older! While the content of our talks and prayer will be Catholic in nature, women of all faiths are MORE than welcome to attend!

What: It will be a weekend filled with Inspiration, prayer, amazing music, community and fun! Our Mission is to help women reaffirm their faith in God and in their Catholic faith, to rest and to build and form community with other women of faith.

Our Keynote speaker: Jennifer Fulwiler is a writer, a speaker, and the host of The Jennifer Fulwiler Show on SiriusXM channel 129. Her bestselling memoir, Something Other than God, was a finalist in the “Best Memoir and Biography” category in the Goodreads Choice Awards. Her new book, One Beautiful Dream, comes out in May 2018 and is available for pre-order now. She’s been a guest on variety of national television shows, and was the subject of the reality show Minor Revisions. She lives with her husband and six young children in Austin, Texas. You can connect with her at JenniferFulwiler.com.

Our M.C. Michelle Benzinger is a national women’s speaker, creative entrepreneur, and advocate for marginalized women and children. She is the visionary leader of Greenhouse Collective and the creative director of Meaningful Market. She co-hosts a podcast, Abiding Together with Sr. Miriam Heidland and Heather Khym. Michelle and her husband, Chris, have served in global and domestic missions for the past 15 years with their six children (two adopted from Haiti) and now reside in Pensacola, Florida.

Our Music leader for the weekend, Louisiana native, Kelly Pease has been praying through music since the age of 14. After spending her formative years writing and recording Christian music, both independently and with a major record label, she felt the Lord calling her to a new vocation: marriage and family. She is now writing about these adventures in an effort to offer the hope that is Christ to other young moms. She will be joined by a group of other amazing women who will guide us in beautiful, simple, prayerful music throughout the weekend!

Break out Speakers! Will will have amazing break out speakers to guide us in community building. Stay tuned!

Prayer and Liturgy: Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will be available in a special chapel in the hotel for the entire weekend.
