The conference closed on Wednesday morning with keynote speaker Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of Toronto, who challenged attendees to embrace the fire of the Holy Spirit and become even better stewards of the Church.
Session speakers, such as Myrtha Diaz Medina of the Archdiocese of San Juan, Puerto Rico, encouraged attendees to overcome the challenges we encounter through prayer, communal action, service and sacrifice. She is one to know. She and her parish family survived a Category Five hurricane that devastated her island one year ago.
And let’s not forget the evening events, including Sunday’s Welcome Reception with the exhibitors and Tuesday evening’s Jubilate Deo! “Rejoice in the Lord” sacred music concert.
