Dinner With Jesus: Ladies' Night Out Puts Fresh Face on Women's Conference

2023 Norwich Diocesan Women's Conference 

Dinner with Jesus: A Ladies' Night Out

Check out the Virtual Basket Raffle: Click Here

The Norwich Diocesan Women’s Conference Committee is putting a fresh face on this year’s event.   The newly imagined conference entitled, “Dinner with Jesus”, will change format and location this year to be an inspirational evening out at the historic Inn at Middletown, Connecticut, March 22, 2023, at 6 p.m..  Bring your sisters, daughters, friends and fellow parishioners to be inspired and fed in a deep and meaningful way.

Returning keynote speaker will be author Julianne Stanz.  Julianne is the director of discipleship and parish life for the Diocese of Green Bay, Wisconsin and is a consultant to the USCCB Committee on Catechesis and Evangelization.  Julianne was the keynote speaker and loved by all for the Norwich Diocesan Women’s Conference in 2020 for the first virtual event during the pandemic.  This year Stanz will finally join us in person with her humble knowledge and charm to elaborate on her book, "Start with Jesus," while a sit-down dinner is enjoyed by all. 

The evening will also celebrate the third recipient of the annual Our Lady Queen of Hope Award.  The award, which began in 2020, will be presented that evening to this year’s winner.  The Our Lady Queen of Hope Award is given to a woman, who has been nominated by her community and is of strong faith, living out a commitment of Catholic values, spiritual leadership, and a spirit of love and service to the Church.  The recipient receives two hundred dollars to the charity of her choice, a framed award signed by Bishop Cote, a mass said for her at her home parish and her name added to a plaque that hangs in the diocesan offices.

Adding to the fun of the evening, in addition to the annual basket raffle that has always accompanied the conference, will be a silent auction.  Among the many items up for grabs is a beautifully framed print of the Blessed Mother by artist Robert Pinnette.

We hope that women of all ages from around the diocese will come together with us for this very special event.  Don’t delay in reserving your space, limited seating is available.  Please contact the Office of Faith Events with questions and at 860-848-2237.
