WHAT IS CWC?
The Catholic Women's Conference is a "Spa Day for the Soul." It will be a source of inspiration for women of all ages, offering speakers to teach, encourage and challenge women in the Catholic faith. Join women from across Montana and beyond for a day long spiritual retreat featuring prayer, music, speakers and more! Our "Spa Day" will conclude with Mass.

OUR MISSION
The mission of the Catholic Women's Conference is to foster an appreciation for the personal dignity of women, to encourage women to know and love God, and to inspire women to use their feminine gifts to transform the family and society. CWC is an event for healing, spiritual direction, for receiving tools for everyday living and for resources for education.

OUR STORY
This is the second year for CWC in Montana. Velma Burnett, who lived in San Antonio, attended the San Antonio CWC in 2001 and soon began to help with the many needs of their conference as a steering committee member. After moving to Montana, Velma returned to San Antonio each year to be re-energized through prayer and formation. This led to a deep desire to bring a Catholic Women's Conference to Montana. Velma said "yes" to Jesus, Fall of 2014. The CWC was founded to educate women on both the teachings of the Catholic Church and of their personal dignity. An article titled, "The Vocation of Holy Womanhood," by Amy Love inspired the founder, Mary Jane Fox, and she wanted to spread the news to the whole world! We believe more than ever, women need to know about the gift of their femininity. With encouragement from Velma's husband and a friend, the beginnings of a CWC were soon blessed by Helena, Montana Bishop, George Leo Thomas. We envision the conference to be a "spiritual haven" where women come together to learn and pray, to be challenged and healed, and to receive resources that will help them on their journey to heaven.
