Kendra Von Esh is a speaker, author and retreat leader who is passionate about helping others to deepen their relationship with God and to discern His will in their lives. Sensing a growing emptiness in her life, this one-time corporate executive decided to go back to the Catholic Church where, as she explains, “God found her.” In short time, she left a successful career to focus on sharing her journey of faith. With humor and genuineness, she recounts her journey from lukewarm belief to a state of grace, peace and joy arising from her personal relationship with God.
Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V.,
Celebrant and Homilist, Conference Closing Mass
“During Lent, we are called to look for ways to grow in faith, to reflect on and to deepen our relationship with God. Our Women and Men’s Conference provides an opportunity to do that. It’s a day of renewal, of prayer, of music, and of friendship; it’s a day to enrich ourselves spiritually and prepare ourselves for the celebration of Holy Week and Easter. I hope you will be able to take part, and know that I look forward to being with you.”
