A day designed for Catholic parents of special needs children featuring four talks, continental breakfast and lunch included, plus the opportunity to attend Mass, Adoration, and Confession. Speakers include Ave Marie Press author Mary Lenaburg, talking on learning to trust God and His plan; David Rizzo, author of numerous books on special needs catechesis, will discuss how to prepare your special needs child for his or her sacraments; Kelly Mantoan, chairwoman and writer, will speak on preventing caregiver burnout, both spiritually and physically; and a special panel consisting of Camden, NJ Diocesan Chancellor Rev. James Bartoloma and the National Catholic Bioethics Center, Philadelphia, PA will address tough ethical questions many Catholic special needs parents face that are outside the expertise of their local parish priest. Tickets are $49.95 for in person attendance. Parents who are unable to attend due to distance or caregiver duties can purchase an online attendance ticket for $19.99 and live stream the talks on the day of the event. All attendees will get access to recordings of the days talks, plus access to an online library of additional talks and resources. Tickets can be purchased online through the conference website.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
