2019 ConferenceAll Heart All In
Take the JourneyFrom Head to Heart to Mission
Are you on fire for God or just going through the motions? Does He have your heart, or are you still holding back?
Wherever you are at, the Totus Tuus “Consecrate Them in Truth” Family Conference can help you take the journey from head to heart to mission.
During this weekend retreat, you’ll be drawn—along with your family—into an encounter with Jesus that will set your heart on fire. Then, equipped with the tools you need, you can go home ready to share that experience with others.
Don’t miss this opportunity to grow closer to God and each other through the sacraments, devotions, inspiring programming, and fun activities for all ages.

Sent into the World
Leave with renewed zeal for the Faith and the practical tools you need to answer the call to evangelize.

Can a priest come to this conference? What about lodging & meals for him? What will he do during the event?
Yes, priests are most welcome to attend any of our events! They are free to attend alone or come with a family.
We ask that each priest register by filling out our Visiting Priest Form online. We will be happy to provide a retreat room and meals for the week at no charge.
The priest (or the family who invited him) is welcome to make a freewill offering to cover food and lodging expenses through our online donation page. (Please make a note in the comment box “For Fr. ______’s stay”).
As part of their registration, each priest must submit a letter of good standing to both of the following entities:
ATTN: Linda Nichols, Chancellor

We invite all priests to concelebrate at Mass each day and to help administer the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Since we do not have enough albs for all the visiting clergy, we ask that priests bring their own albs. Priests are also welcome to participate in any activities taking place during the event.
