16 - 18 September 2016 Peter Cosgrove Centre, North Sydney
The Archdiocese of Sydney is excited to be hosting the first Catholic Singles Conference to be held from 16 to 18 September 2016 in North Sydney.
The Catholic Singles Conference is about giving single Catholics the opportunity to grow in faith and friendship, it will seek to encourage attendees to live their singleness well and to become happier and holier people. The Conference will discuss themes such as:
• Where is God in my singleness • Dating and chastity • The importance of friendship • Pornography and Lust • Practical Living as a Single
Prayer opportunities, Mass, sessions and social opportunities will make up the conference. Registration includes an evening cocktail reception on Friday night and on Saturday night, a formal three course dinner and 1950's dance – lessons included – to be held in the Crystal Ballroom of Luna Park overlooking Sydney Harbour. There will also be opportunities to take part in Pre and Post Conference activities.
The Catholic Singles Conference will feature two international keynote speakers flying out especially for this event. Fr Thomas Loya is the pastor of Annunciation of the Mother of God Byzantine Catholic Parish in Homer Glen, Illinois and is a popular conference speaker on a range of faith topics. Mary Beth Bonacci is the author of the books, "We're on a Mission from God" and "Real Love", and has addressed thousands of young adults on issues of sexuality and the Theology of the Body. Both have presented on previous occasions at previous Catholic Singles Conferences that have been held in the USA.
We warmly invite all single Catholics to join us as we host what is bound to be a very exciting weekend. Please extend this invitation to any single men and women you know.
