Why A Scholarship For NCSC?
The CatholicMatch Institute provides encouragement and support for single Catholics as they grow in their faith and discern God’s will. We encourage single Catholics to take advantage of every tool available to them, whether it be through online dating, parish groups or Catholic events.
As a part of our mission to help single Catholics deepen their faith and learn better how to date in order to answer the call to marriage, the CatholicMatch Institute is awarding scholarships to five single Catholics to participate in the National Catholic Singles Conference that will be held in San Diego on August 8-10, 2014.
The scholarship covers only half of the registration fee of the conference.
About The Conference
The National Catholic Singles Conference (NCSC) was created to give single Catholics the opportunity to meet other like-minded singles and learn more about and share their Faith. Talks by dynamic speakers, time for prayer, and various social opportunities create an intense and inspiring weekend!
The 2014 Conference in San Diego will include hundreds of single Catholics from around the United States. Guest presenters include internationally known speakers: Christa Lopiccolo; Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and President of the Ruth Institute; John LaBriola, founder of the Catholic Family Foundation; Martha Fernández-Sardina, founder of RememberYouAreLoved.com and Director of Prepare The Way Enterprises; and Patrick Reidy. The conference will include socials, Mass, time for prayer and a dance on Saturday night. Stay through Sunday night and socialize with fellow attendees during the post-conference events. Visit the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, the gardens and Spanish Colonial Revival Architecture at Balboa Park, beautiful beaches, and more!
