An invitation to the 2016 Dallas Ministry Conference

Sponsored by the Diocese of Dallas and the University of Dallas, the 2016 conference strives to bring together Catholic faithful from the diocese and the surrounding area to learn, pray, and Walk Together in Faith.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is our great joy to invite you to the tenth annual Dallas Ministry Conference, scheduled for September 29 - October 1, 2016. This event, which will be sponsored by the Diocese of Dallas and the University of Dallas and it is our great hope that the 2016 conference will attract even more faithful participants, who will have a blessed, faith-filled, and formative experience.

The Dallas Ministry Conference offers Catholics an opportunity to receive exceptional faith formation from nationally recognized speakers who will address relevant topics of faith, catechesis, education, theology, prayer and ministry. Participants will trulyWalk Together in Faith, by attending these significant keynote addresses and ministry-specific breakout sessions, participating in Mass and prayer services, perusing the exhibitions, admiring the liturgical art display, and listening to Christian musical performances.

The conference is a wonderful opportunity for ongoing formation that can rejuvenate those working in the Church today as we assist those we serve to more deeply understand their Catholic faith and grow in spirituality. We encourage you to join the ministers from the administrative, parish and school levels from throughout the Diocese of Dallas and North Texas at this vital three-day gathering of ministry and faith formation.

We look forward to your participation at the tenth annual Dallas Ministry Conference on September 29 - October 1, 2016 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas. May God bless you in the important work you do for our Church!
