Sooo, anyone out there ever attend the National Catholic Singles Conference? This year it will be in Philly! I've never attended but some of my friends have and one of my friends is actually being considered as one of the featured speakers! I've always been curious about this event and am even more so now that my friend's story may actually be a highlight of the event.

Anyone going to it this year? :)

Hi Megan, do you know the dates? I have been trying to find info on it but have been unsuccessful.

It will be held outside Philadelphia this fall! Exact date and location coming very soon! cloud

Have you been to it before...if so, what's it like?

I've never been to one before but I know that in past years it's been held in February. So I thought it was coming up soon but just couldn't find info on it. How did you hear about it?

I've been to one when it was held in San Diego and highly recommend it! They have excellent speakers as well as singles activities like a dance. The topics were mainly about relationships, which you would expect at a singles conference. My favorite thing about Catholic conferences in general is just the overall atomosphere - it's like a faith immersion experience: speakers, Masses, Confession, the chapel is usually open for adoration, etc. Definitely go if you have an opportunity. I wonder if the new Archbishop of Philly will preside at any of the Masses. He is amazing.

Thank you Lisa!! That sounds like an amazing experience! wave

Over the last couple of years I've attended young adults retreats in PA and at the OBX as well as Catholic conferences in Raleigh, NC but I've never done a singles retreat so was wondering if it would be very different from those prior experiences.

Will you be attending the one in Philly or is it too difficult with being in CA? Ironically, I'll be in CA myself for work in April/May! smile

My friend who is a potential speaker for the conference told me tonight! Depending on when it is in Sept., I'm very much considering it!! Lisa's description makes me want to try it out even more since it sounds like the experience will be like an awesome retreat only better!

No, I can't go. :( It's too far, and I can't travel during the school year because my son is with me full time.
