I’m writing to encourage St. Anthony’s parishioners to consider going to the Christ Our Life Conference in Des Moines, September 29-30
. My wife, Paula, and I have gone to the last three of these events and will be there again this year. It’s the “real deal!" The speakers, musicians, vendors, and venue are all top-notch. Bishop Robert Barron will be there this year and should be outstanding. Being in an arena with 7,000 other Catholics is energizing. It’s a wonderful opportunity to immerse oneself in the richness of our faith from so many angles. High school and college kids, young families with children, the elderly and infirm are all drawn to that faith for which early Christians would give their lives.
Faith, especially ours, is like so many things that you get more out of when you put more into it. There’s much more to being Catholic than just going to Sunday Mass. Please join us!
