While we are hard at work during the convention, plans are in place to entertain our wives and loved ones. We want to make sure that all who attend have a pleasant weekend. The following events are planned:

  • Friday evening entertainment provided by the Cardinal Gibbons High School music department under the direction of Mr. Mark Cushin.
  • On Saturday, the ladies will enjoy a morning dedicated to wellness and self-care, that will focus on nurturing your inner and outer beauty as a woman of faith. As busy wives, mothers, daughters, grandmothers…we often spend much more time caring for others than we do for ourselves. Healthy routines or practices like stretching, mindful breathing, skincare and beauty rituals can easily fall by the wayside in our quest to do things for others. But scripture actually tells us that God wants us to take the time we need to rest, renew, and revitalize ourselves. He wants us to treasure and love ourselves as much as He loves us. Let’s learn together how we can do this better!
  • On Sunday, the ladies are invited to relax, enjoy watching a Christian movie, and some refreshments.
  • For children (6 years or older) a fun morning of interactive science experiments is on the agenda.Science for Fun ( provides hands-on kits that will not just keep our children entertained, but perhaps get them excited about learning.
  • On Saturday evening, our youth will enjoy a pizza party and movie during the banquet.
