Women’s Catholic Conference Held at St. Bede Parish on Nov. 2

The Diocesan Women’s Conference at St. Bede Parish in Williamsburg, Saturday, Nov. 2 drew 350 people from across the diocese. Keynote speakers Chika Anyanwu and Mary Lenaburg on the English track reminded the audience that God knows you, loves you and desires you and that even in our most horrific circumstances, God is always good. Keynote speakers on the Spanish track were Eva Gonzales who spoke on leadership of women and the church and Adriana Visoso who addressed women’s leadership in daily life. Look for the complete story in the Nov. 18 issue of The Catholic Virginian.
