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.
