Conference Details

"A new command I give you: Love one another.  

As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

Our vision is to offer an opportunity to gather together in Praise and Worship, to receive sound Christian teaching from local and international speakers and to celebrate the Holy Mass each day.

Our mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in accordance with the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church.

2017 Conference 7th - 11th August

30 year’s of the Conference

Dear fellow pilgrims

In August 1988 the first Conference was held in Newman College, Frankley Beeches, Birmingham. The inspiration for the Conference came from Fr. David Keniry and Beryl Gill.

In our 30th. year we are continuing that inspiration given by the Holy Spirit. Our mission is to bring good Catholic teaching, Prayer and Praise, use of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, all leading to the celebration of the Holy Mass.

After 18 years we moved to the Paragon Hotel in 2006 and for the next 7 years God poured out His blessings not just us but also on the management and staff, we

believe that some of them found Jesus. We give thanks for the management and staff for the their support in helping us to fulfil God’s mission.

In 2013 God called us to move, so in 2014 we embarked on a new journey and moved to St. John’s Hotel in Solihull. not only a new venue but a new patron Monsignor Paul Watson.

We give thanks for all the support and encouragement former patron Mrg John Moran VG gave to us over the years.

Over the years we have had the support and encouragement of many faithful priests and deacons. Speakers from home and around the world have challenged and inspired us with both teaching and


Your prayers and attendance have supported us through thirty years without you there would not be a conference for you have been a part in shaping our mission.

As we enter uncertain times we are in greater need than ever for the Holy Spirit to give us increased Faith, Hope and Love not only for ourselves but our neighbours, so many of whom do not know the existence of God’s love but yearn for it. However, it is not enough to maintain the Conference it should also stretch and challenge us.

This year will be no exception. We will again be challenged and inspired by some of the changes we are making.

The streams for the children and young adults have borne much fruit and their input has been stimulating and with the support of their leaders will continue to be so.

We sincerely thank you and ask you to continue to support us with your presence and prayers as we together journey on this new challenge.

Your brothers and sisters in Christ
