Second Annual Indiana Holy Family Catholic Conference Coming to Kokomo

Kokomo, IN (APRIL 13, 2008) - The second annual Indiana Holy Family Catholic Conference will be held in Kokomo on May 17-18, 2008, announced Rev. Theodore Dudzinski, moderator of the local Catholic community of Howard County.

Building the Domestic Church through God, Family and Love is the second state-wide event to be hosted jointly by the two Catholic parishes in Howard County: Saint Joan of Arc Catholic Church and Saint Patrick Catholic Church in Kokomo, IN and the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana. The event is sponsored by St. Joseph Hospital and the Knights of Columbus of Kokomo.

"The idea of a family conference has been a reoccurring theme in my prayer for years. The family is a concern for all who minister in the Church. Daily we see the struggles and breakdowns within families. Using the wisdom of Holy Mother Church, this conference is intended to supply the "Domestic Church" (the basic family unit) with the necessary knowledge to be the Holy Family they are called to be through God, proper family relations, and a Love which binds all things together", Rev. Dudzinski said.

Nationally known Catholic speakers scheduled for the event include:

clinical psychologist, author, television and radio host Dr. Ray Guarendi; Brothers of St. John priest and EWTN personality Fr. Antoine; Patty Schneier, life-long Catholic wife, mother and public speaker; Fr. Peter Laird is Assistant Professor of Moral Theology at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. Fr. Laird holds a license and a doctorate in Sacred Theology from institutions associated with the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome, Italy

"This conference will provide families with some very relevant information to help strengthen their families and even be life changing for them. We have found that families struggle, not because of bad motivation, but rather because they are constantly being bombarded with the subtle diversions of the world and the devil. When God and His Church's teachings are placed at the heart of the family, the family is able to prosper and grow. We believe that God is giving us the necessary grace to witness His love and build the Domestic Church today," Rev. Dudzinski said.

The Catholic family conference will be held at Kokomo High School, 2502 South Berkley, Kokomo. Special activities are planned for children of all ages, with programs specifically directed towards teenagers, along with the celebration of Mass on both days of the event.
