2. How about lunch?
This year we are having a catered lunch! You don’t have to worry about looking for a spot to eat or worry about getting back to the conference on time! Just sit and relax and enjoy the conversation and laughter at your table! Isn’t that exciting? Over the years many women have mentioned that they would like more time to get to know other women at the conference. Lunch is the perfect way to do it! No more rushing around! Lunch is included in the registration fee – no substitutions! Sorry about that, but the event is run primarily by volunteers and there is only so much we can do!
We are happy to announce that we have free parking this year! Again, over the years moms mentioned that the parking fees were a bit of a strain on the pocket book – so when we booked our venues this year, we had you in mind! Free Parking! Hooray !!!
4. Morning Coffee & Light Breakfast
We are excited to announce that we will be serving coffee at the conference when you arrive! We will also have a light pastry along with it.
5. Is there going to be a Mass?
We are blessed this year again and again! Since we are hosting our conference at The John Paul 11 Cultural Centre, we are right next door to St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church. The church has two masses on Saturday: one in the morning at 8:00am & one at 5:00pm after the conference!
You you can decide which works best for you!
Just visit their website – call their office to confirm the details are up to date.
