From Sept. 29 - Oct. 1 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas, Catholic faithful from the diocese and the surrounding area will come together at the 10th annual Dallas Ministry Conference, sponsored by the Diocese of Dallas and the University of Dallas, to learn, pray and “Walk Together in Faith.”
Over the three-day period, 128 speakers will share their wisdom and stories. These 128 include 22 members of religious life, 14 priests and 16 past or present University of Dallas professors — an impressive array who together boast over 750 combined years in ministry, but among them are also reporters, CEOs, founders, artists, architects and authors. Here are 11 changemakers (some might even say visionaries) you’ll have the opportunity to gain insight from and possibly even meet this week at the DMC:
These 11 are just a sampling of the DMC’s talented and dedicated speakers, all men and women who work daily to enact virtue and spread the gospel throughout their communities, their countries and often the world.
Whatever your area of interest in ministry, according to Emilia Leon, manager of advertising and promotions for the Dallas Ministry Conference, you’ll find a session pertaining to it at the DMC.
"This conference is open to everyone — whether you’re a working professional in ministry or a layperson, there’s something that will surely interest you,” she said. “It’s the 10th anniversary of the DMC. We’re excited to host the event and welcome newcomers as well as returning attendees.”
