1. Who are the Speakers?
We would kindly ask you to refer to the conference brochures for our speakers this year. You can download a copy of the brochures right here:
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 after Mass! We will also have a light pastry along with it.
5. IS THERE GOING TO BE A MASS?
Yes! We are blessed this year again and again! The Mass is going to be celebrated at St. Maximilian Kolbe church, which is right next door to the conference venue – the St. John Paul 11 Polish Cultural Centre.
The church has an evening Mass too, so if you would like to go that please check their website for current Mass times.
