Catholic Familyland to hold conference on family and the Eucharist

.- Families across the world are expected to attend the Catholic Familyland Bloomingdale Indiana for the 16th International Totus Tuus Consecrate Them in Truth Family Conference, Oct. 15-17.

The conference will focus on the Eucharist, the family and the media. It is based on the Pope's latest encyclical, Ecclesia de Eucharistia, which focuses on the Church and its relationship to the Eucharist.

"We hope to give participants the opportunity to learn how the Eucharist must be the main factor in building up their family, parish and neighborhood," said Jerry Coniker, co-founder of Catholic Familyland.

Events include eucharistic adoration, Divine Mercy chaplet and benediction, sung rosary, music concerts and seminars. Bishop Roger Foys of Covington, Ky., is expected to celebrate mass Oct. 15.

Speakers include Dr. Scott Haun, professor of theology and Scripture. He will give a talk called "Swear to God: The Promise of the Sacraments." Fr. Michael Scanlan, TOR, chancellor of the university, will speak on "Eucharistic Amazement", and Jerry Coniker will speak on "Catholic Family Culture and the Eucharist." Kimberly Hahn, author, will discuss "The Eucharist as Life Giving Love." Jeff Cavins, director of programming and production of Starboard Network radio stations, will present "The Home: The Center of Catechesis."

Families will also reflect on the papacy of Pope John Paul II titled "Be Not Afraid Family Hour."

Programs for children will be available, including Saints Under Construction for children, ages 4-9, and Totally Yours for children ages 10-12. A program will be available for children ages 13 and up. Noah's Nursery will provide care for toddlers.

For information and a schedule of the weekend’s events, call 1-800-773-2645.
