The Battle That No One Wants to Talk About … But We Need to Talk About
In today’s increasingly sexualized culture we are facing challenges that haven’t been faced before as a Church, as husbands and wives, parents, friends, coworkers etc. Yet, this is a conversation most are unwilling to have. This panel discussion by experts in the field from Integrity Restored looks to provide insights into what is happening and how we can address it from all perspectives regardless of our state in life. As we seek to “bring light to the darkness”, it is our hope that this panel will educate, equip and inspire everyone to fight this ever-increasing battle.

3:30 PM: Keynote – Men’s/Women’s Split Session
Devin Schadt

Building an Army for God
Threaded throughout the biblical Judeo-Christian historical chronicles is the theme of the day of battle falling on the 13th Day. Perhaps, as in no moment of history, God’s people are under siege and the evil one appears to be striding toward his ultimate victory. In this talk you will discover the evil one’s plan to destroy God’s people, how it involved the 13th day, and how Mary has revealed God’s secret weapon, and what God is asking us to do to participate in His victory.

Megan Murphy

She Shall Crush Thy Head
What is it about Mary, terror of demons, that gives her victory over Satan in the battle for our souls, our marriages, our families, our femininity, and our church? A deeper look at testimonies by great saints devoted to Mary, as well as scripture particularly related to many mysteries of her rosary, “the weapon,” reveal why Mary is key to the feminine genius we need to be, and to putting on the Whole Armor of God.

4:30 PM: Dinner Break

6:00 PM: Keynote – Damon & Melanie Owens

Joyful Ever After: Getting the Marriage You Want From the Marriage You Have
Each stage of marriage has its own particular struggles and challenges in intimacy, sex, finances, time, communication, prayer, work, parenting, leisure, health, etc. When our desire for a joy-filled marriage doesn’t materialize on its own, the difficult day-to-day reality of married life seems more real to us than God’s plan for joy-filled marriage. We need to begin again, together. Remember your hopes and dreams on your wedding day? Ready to get to the root of why you “don’t love each other the same way anymore”?  Now is the time to restore hope in God’s designs for you! Now is the time for all of us – married, single, widowed, divorced, religious, and clergy – to understand our role in renewing marriages. With their distinctive style of warmth and humor, Damon & Melanie share 26 years of joys, mistakes, struggles, wisdom, and faith to help couples rediscover how to live joyfully ever after!

3:30 PM: Keynote – Split Session
Paul & Carol Leland

Marriage by the Book
Paul & Carol will focus on God’s design and purpose for marriage, and how that can help us go through the problems and challenges marriage brings.

Msgr. William King, Deacon David & Libby Hall

Notes from a Field Hospital: a Pastoral Look at the Battlefield
Pope Francis famously called for the Church to be “a field hospital after battle.” He challenges parishes to see in our culture’s most serious problems a search, a deep thirst for God.  Monsignor William King, with Deacon David Hall and his wife Libby, look at today’s spiritual battlefield: where does the parish fit in to the battle for souls and a culture gasping for the breath of God?

4:30 PM: Dinner Break

6:00 PM: Keynote – Fr. Michael Gaitley

You are my Beloved: The love that God the Father has for Us
