Will there be Mass?
Yes! We will have Mass with the St. Agnes community at 9 a.m. Saturday. Attendees also are encouraged to receive the sacrament of penance and reconciliation from 8 to 9 a.m. (the conference will provide additional priests to the two St. Agnes typically schedules). In addition, for those who would like contemplation rather than small group discussion on Saturday, the adoration chapel is located upstairs from the conference venue.
You also are welcome to join the St. Agnes community at the Vigil Mass at 5 p.m. on Saturday after the conference concludes.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Free parking is available at St. Agnes. For those who take Metro, transportation can be arranged from the Ballston station (Orange/Silver Lines) if you let us know in advance. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where should I stay, since the conference isn't at a hotel this year?
We have a limited number of rooms at a special rate of $129 at the
Hilton Arlington Towers, located just above the Ballston Metro. The group
code is FWH and you may book directly through this link. Reservations
must be made by September 12. We may have "after hours" events at the
Hilton on Friday and Saturday nights for those who just don't want the
sistership to end! And, of course, you're welcome to commute from your
home if you prefer.
Is there a group rate?
Yes! Groups of six who pay by check are eligible for a reduced rate. For details, please email us at email@example.com.
Can I mail a check instead of use a credit card?
Yes. When you check out, under Payment, use the dropdown box to indicate pay by
check. Checks then can be mailed to Future with Hope Women’s Conference,
4201 Wilson Blvd. #110328, Arlington, VA. If you would prefer to register
offline, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I get a refund if I don’t attend?
We are unable to offer refunds, though you are welcome to sell your ticket
to someone else. You may be able to do so via a post on our Facebook page.
Can I just come Saturday/just come for a particular speaker/just come
The conference is an opportunity to build community and learn more about the options
ahead for you, and we believe that is best experienced by attending the entire conference.
You may decide to attend only parts of the event, but the fee will not be pro-rated.
Is financial assistance available?
We’d be happy to talk with your pastor about subsidizing a reduced rate for your parish,
as some have done in the past. Please contact us for more details.
What about diet restrictions/physical and other accommodations?
We’re here to serve and will contact registrants about accommodations a couple weeks before the conference. Or, if you prefer, contact us now with more details.
I have a question that’s not addressed here. Help!
Sure thing! Please contact us.
Welcome to your Future with Hope!
