Milwaukee-based organization to offer conference for Catholic homeschoolers

.- Homeschooling Catholics in the Diocese of Milwaukee are preparing for a conference next month titled, "Celebrate the Faith 2009.”  The conference will feature the Auxiliary Bishop of Milwaukee, William P. Callahan as well as renown homeschooling speakers.

The conference, sponsored by the Greater Milwaukee Catholic Homeschool Educators, is scheduled to run both April 24 and 25 in West Allis, Wisconsin.  On Friday, the auxiliary bishop of Milwaukee will give the keynote address while Saturday’s main speaker will be Andrew Pudewa, the Founder and Director of the Excellence in Writing Institute and homeschooling father of seven children. Pudewa was chosen for the "Best Homeschool Speaker" award in 2007 from Old Schoolhouse Magazine.

Other speakers include Regina Doman, and husband, Andrew Schmiedicke who balance homeschooling with editing and writing for their company, Chesterton Productions. Doman has also written books such as Angel in the Waters, and several books geared toward teenagers.

The conference will include Mass, and opportunities for Confession and Eucharistic Adoration. Additionally there will be a vendor hall providing a variety of educational materials in all subject areas plus resources on family life, spirituality and religious gifts.

Conference organizers expect 600 people to attend.
