Northwest Catholic Family Education Conference


The Northwest Catholic Family Education Conference, Nurturing Catholic Family Life, will be May 1-2, 2009 in Tukwila, WA (just south of Seattle).

Fr. Gerard Saguto, F.S.S.P. (who was ordained with one of my brother-in-laws and happened to be a fellow student at Christendom when I was there!) will be one of the speakers, giving a presentation on "Salt and Talent."

I can't wait to finally be able to meet Meredith, one of the very first Catholic bloggers/friends I met online!! =) She will be speaking as well, giving a presentation on "Nurturing Catholic Family Life by Living the Liturgical Year." Doesn't it sound wonderful?!

I am also looking forward to hearing Dr. Joan Cotter, author of Right Start Mathematics, speak about "How Children Learn Best — Keeping Brain Research in Mind" and "Why Mathematics Is Important for Our Children’s Futures". Math has been a challenge this year, so hopefully I will come how with some new tips that will help.

Other speakers include Fr. Jim Kelleher, S.O.L.T., Camille Pauley, Carrie Thienes, and more.

I'll be traveling to the conference with a friend of mine, and staying with another friend I haven't seen in forever! I can't wait!!! =) This year, I'll make sure not to leave any valuables in my car, since I learned my lesson last year!

If you'd like to attend, you can register online or by mail. They are offering a special discounted rate for the remainder of March in honor of St. Joseph, so be sure to register soon!

Will I be seeing any of you there??


  1. Yea!! It is coming up soon! Can't wait to go with ya!!!!!

  2. I know!! It IS coming up fast!!! It is going to be so much fun!! =)

  3. Sounds great! I'll have to check with my DH but doubt that we have room in our budget for this opp. Do they offer CD tracks of the conference?

    Pax -

  4. Lena ~ I don't know if they are planning to offer CD's or not?? That would be great if they did!! It would be so wonderful if you could come!! I wonder if anyone else in your area is planning on making the trip... Splitting the travel costs with others would make it much more affordable, though it is still quite far for you to travel... You'll have to let me know if you go!!!

  5. I can't wait to meet you either Jessica, it will be great! Love,
