Our first “Love Being Catholic” Conference was a huge success. With an auditorium full of great Catholics we started off with Fr. Chris Alar giving his talk on the End Times.
He was followed by Fr. Don Calloway who gave a very inspiring and challenging talk on Saint Joseph. Both of these priests are fun to listen to, full of energy and good humor.
We followed this with our Q&A panel discussion with myself and the two priests. Great questions and a lot of fun dialoguing back-and-forth with the audience.
Lunch along the Mississippi river and then we came back for my talk “Swimming Upstream, How to Live a Catholic Life in a Pagan World.“ Time for fellowship and purchasing books and praying the rosary. Then we had mass with three priests and a deacon celebrating.
That was followed with a luscious banquet dinner and then Jeromy McClellan took the stage for an hour of hilariously funny Catholic humor. His description of standing in the confession line as one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.
We all hugged and said goodbye and the conference came to an end. Everybody is now heading for home after a great week here in Wisconsin.
Fr. Don Calloway’s excellent homily
