Dynamic Women of Faith Conference
SATURDAY MARCH 24, 2018
John Paul II Polish Cultural Centre
4300 Cawthra Rd., Mississauga, ON
“The Dynamic Women of Faith Conference has been pivotal for giving me courage to live an authentic Catholic faith. It taught me basic foundations, and helped me make good choices as a woman and mother. This conference is a life changer and has been an absolute must in my life for almost a decade. It has strengthened me to forgive and love others better and has helped me grow to be happier with an inner joy and peace. Thank you to all the amazing organizers/speakers and contributors.”
“Dorothy, thank you for another wonderful conference. I was so happy that my daughter was able to come and hear all those wonderful things. There were many a powerful moments. I wanted to thank you for something you said, It was right at the end when you came up and started talking about how you felt some women were being called to have more babies and you were encouraging us to go to confession and pray the rosary go to Mass and have a personal prayer time etc. Everything you said was so good! I felt like that in itself could have been a talk. I know that for many of us we are already doing that, but for those who are “fledglings” in the faith it is exactly what they need to hear! Thank you so much for all that you do.”
“The Dynamic Women of Faith conferences are amazing! I look forward to this event every year and travel in a long distance just to hear the speakers. It is a rare moment to have so much excitement in the room for celebrating the dignity of womanhood. It encourages me to live a genuine Catholic faith. I have become a more forgiving and loving person and it has helped my children, marriage and community at large in service. The people radiate joy and bring greater peace to my life. Thank you to all the people who have made this event a success year after year!”
