    New Location-Cathedral of the Holy Cross - The Conferences were blessed the past two years with the generosity of Boston College in allowing us to utilize Conte Forum. The hospitality, professionalism and care of the BC staff inspired our conference team. We decided to move to the Cathedral this year to: (a) lower our costs so that we can lower ticket prices; (b) allow the Women's Conference to be on a Saturday; (c) encourage Catholics to experience the Cathedral - a true gem of the Catholic Church in New England.

    Now on a Saturday! - Many women have suggested it would be great if the Women's Conference could be held on a Saturday instead of a Sunday or Friday evening. Because of the lower setup costs at the Cathedral, and the generosity of Fr. Kevin O'Leary, Rector of the Cathedral, we can try the format of 2 separate Saturday Conferences in 2010. We hope it will allow more women to attend and lead to a full Cathedral!
