More than 400 Catholic women from around Indiana gathered at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown on March 21 to hear four dynamic speakers discuss “The New Evangelization: Bringing Jesus to the World” at Marian Center of Indianapolis’ 2015 Indiana Catholic Women’s Conference.

Along with opportunities for eucharistic adoration, confession, Benediction and a healing service, the gathering featured Mass celebrated by Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin.

Throughout the day, participants also heard talks from Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Father James Blount, Catholic magazine publisher and talk-show host Danielle Bean, internationally known Catholic singer/songwriter Annie Karto, and Yvonne O’Brien, co-founder of the Catholic missionary foundation Christ in the City.

Below are links to excerpts from each talk:
