Welcome to the Catholic Women’s Conference, co-hosted by Endow and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. We are actively working to put together a dynamic, fun and grace-filled event for women. We hope that through this event, each woman will discover more deeply her “feminine genius” and the gift of God’s infinite and tender mercy. What is the feminine genius? Take a look at this 1-minute video for a quick introduction!
This is a special year in which to celebrate our Faith and our femininity! Pope Francis has declared an Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. For this reason, we have decided to devote our women’s conference to the theme “Mother of Mercy, Make Our Hearts Like Yours!” During the conference, we will explore and discover mercy, asking Mary, the Mother of Jesus, to give us a merciful heart like hers. As an added gift, our conference location, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa, has one of the six Holy Doors of Mercy in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Passage through a Holy Door of Mercy offers the opportunity to receive a Plenary Indulgence during this Jubilee Year.
We look forward to seeing you in the Fall!
Your sisters in Christ,
The Catholic Women’s Conference Planning Committee
