The day also included socialization, food, music, reflection, opportunities for reconciliation, adoration and Mass. The music ministry of Última Rhema set the tone, lifting spirits with their inspiring rendition of “We Have So Much to Give Thanks For.”

After the conferences, the participants enjoyed a meal and had the opportunity to approach a first-degree relic of Blessed María Concepción Cabrera de Armida, mother of nine children, to pray and ask for her intercession.
