Lay Catholics - UDMC is for You Too!

Although the name may be deceiving, the University of Dallas Ministry Conference is not just for those who do professional or volunteer ministry, such as priests, religious, catechists, teachers, diocesan workers, etc. Instead, UDMC offers something for every Catholic who wants to become more knowledgeable in their faith and the teachings of the Catholic Church. The conference is a great way to join in fellowship, faith sharing, and prayer with the Catholic community of North Texas.

They feature talks that discuss family life, marriage, parenting, social justice, faith formation, scripture, and Christian spirituality. You can see what sessions are offered in each of these tracks by visiting the Sessions page, and sorting by the Track column.

Other Benefits

Besides the relevant talks available at the conference, many other happenings occur at this three-day event which are enriching for every Catholic. The conference features musical performances by up-and-coming and popular Catholic artists, a liturgical art display, and exhibitors who offer Catholic gifts, books, and information.
