The Diocese of Des Moines

Christ Our Life Catholic Conference — 

The upcoming Christ Our Life Catholic Conference -- an opportunity to inspire people to grow closer to God -- has been moved from the Iowa Events Center to Wells Fargo Arena. Check out the website to get details on the speakers, to get tickets and learn more about the conference! Be among the few in the world to see and hear Cardinal Francis Arinze in person. Cardinal Arinze was considered a top contender for the papacy after Pope John Paul II died. He would have been the first African pope in more than 1,000 years. Also coming to Des Moines is internationally known speaker Matthew Kelly, Renee Bondi, Marino Restrepo, Father Rick Wendell. The conference is a wonderful opportunity for those who have been participating in the diocesan program "On a Journey Together" to hear witness stories and discuss them in small, faith-sharing groups.
