Saturday Keynote Very Rev. Robert Barron, MA, STD
Saturday, March 15, 2014, 8:30 am
"Hope to Set the World Afire” (*)

Let us explore the essential recommendations for the successful proclamation of Jesus Christ in today’s culture. This calls for a “willingness to tell the great story,” lead with the beautiful, preach with ardor, and employ the new media. The presentation will renew our spirits and send us to engage in the transformation of our world.

"Leadership for Transformation: Ministry Afire for the Common Good with Uncommon Excellence!" (*)

Join Dr. Carolyn Woo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), as she inspires leadership for transformation of our world. Enjoy music by OCP artists touched by their journey to Ghana, Africa. Enter into the story of Dr. Woo’s journey from her birth place in Hong Kong, her immigration to the United States to attend Purdue University, as Dean of the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame, to her current position at CRS, our U.S. Catholic community’s mission to serve millions of our brothers and sisters around the world with compassion and excellence. Leave inspired with the tools to be the body of Christ in the world and lead lives and ministry “afire” for the common good.
