Save the date this summer: July 31 - August 2, 2015!
Planning for Faith on Fire 2015 is underway, and we're gearing up for some wonderful additions while celebrating the Year of Consecrated Life. It will be another family-fun summer event, celebrating our Catholic faith and community in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest. Get ready to light your Faith on Fire!

Who should attend?
This is a family event - we want your family! And bring family friends, too. Let's strengthen and build up our Catholic community together.
If you are a father, mother, daughter, son, uncle, aunt, grandmother, grandfather, grandchild, brother, or sister this conference is for you. If you are single, married, a young adult, a not-so-young adult, a college student, (or not), there will be something for you. If you are Catholic, a fallen-away Catholic, a Protestant, an agnostic, someone just in search of Truth from any religious background (or none at all), please know you are welcome. As a member of the Family of God we all have a place in this Catholic Family Conference. Join us this July 31 - August 2.
What to Expect:
From the speakers’ personal experiences, we’ll receive positive insights on how to address the challenges and pressures we all face today in family, marriage, work, faith, and church. They will guide us in ways to direct our time, thoughts, and energy toward forming a personal relationship with God, and provide insights into how to become better disciples of Christ, going out and evangelizing to the world.
As a bonus, view the Vatican International Photographic Exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles of the World during the conference. Re-discover the Eucharistic Lord through images of 140 Church-approved Eucharistic Miracles.
Be sure to bring a blanket or outdoor chair (& sunscreen!) - we will enjoy these talks on the lawn of St. Mary Church (or keep in the shade under the big tent). Say a prayer for the beautiful July and August weather we love! Check out Conference Basics to learn more.
