Mark your calendar! The third Future with Hope
Women's conference for Catholic women over
40 will be Oct. 12-13 at St. Agnes Catholic Church
at 1910 N. Randolph St. in Arlington. We're
humbled and excited by St. Agnes's willingness
to host the conference. The venue provides room
for more women (we sold out last year at 115
from 50 parishes), more exhibitors (we sold out
last year at 12), the opportunity for adoration...
​and Mass with the St. Agnes community on Saturday morning.
