The Cross of St. Benedict will be on display at the “Awakening the Domestic Church” conference to be held at Norfolk, VA.
We decided to be here because we have met the organizer, Deacon Darrell in the Damian Stayne Charism School workshop. We believe that we need to empower the Domestic Church and its members. In our experience, the Sacrament of Marriage has been the source of graces in many issues and conflicts that arise in family life.
We are in a battle for the souls of our children. Media have penetrated their innocent minds and have stirred worldly desires within. The Holy Spirit wants to teach us to awaken the Domestic Church. This conference is packed with powerful speakers. Do not miss this rare event.
