Oklahoma Catholic women and teens are invited to spend a day of reflection, healing and renewal at the Oklahoma Catholic Women's Conference set for March 2 at the Meridian Conference Center in Oklahoma City.
The seventh annual conference will begin at 7 a.m. for check-in and include a morning Mass with the Most Rev. Paul S. Coakley, archbishop of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, at 8 a.m. The closing prayer will be at 5 p.m.
Four general sessions and two new breakout sessions for teens will feature nationally and locally known speakers. Vendor booths will be set up, with books, clothing and religious items for sale. A relic from Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta also will be featured.
Speakers and topics of the general sessions are:
• Susan Conroy, who made her first trip to Calcutta to work with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity in 1986, will speak on “Mother Teresa's Lessons of Love and Secrets of Sanctity” and “The End of the Present World and Mysteries of the Future Life.” In 1991, during Lent, she returned to Calcutta to again work with the nuns there. She travels across the country giving presentations about her experiences with Mother Teresa.
