.- To serve lay Catholics in this election year, the Archdiocese of Denver’s Living the Catholic Faith Conference is set to focus on faithful citizenship.  Its theme, “Decide today whom you will serve” (Jos 24:15) emphasizes the importance of living as a true witness to the Catholic faith.

The conference, to be held March 7 and 8 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver highlights speakers such as Helen Alvaré, Catholic University of America professor; Curtis Martin, founder and president of FOCUS – Fellowship of Catholic University Students; Monsignor Stuart Swetland, director of Homilitcs at Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary; and R. James “Jim” Nicholson, former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs and Ambassador to the Holy See.

The speakers will offer Catholics practical suggestions on how to strengthen their faith in prayer and in action.

Alvaré told the Denver Catholic Register that she is excited to be returning to Denver.

“The theme of my keynote (Christian Service in a Culture of Domination) will deal with something that I think a lot of people struggle with,” Alvaré said. “And that is the gap between what it is as Christians we hope to see ourselves and what it is we live with. Call it the gap of beauty or the gap of love or virtue. I think that many people who are close with their faith are also aware of it.”

The conference is open to all Catholic adults. A Spanish track will be offered on Saturday.

The Living the Catholic Faith Conference will be in the Korbel Ballroom at the Colorado Convention Center, 1700 14th St., Denver. Cost is $65 for one day, $75 for two. Registrations after Feb. 29 cost an additional $10.
