Abound in Hope

Join us for this year's Bishops' Pro-Life Banquet and Conference "Abound in Hope: The Next 50 Years" on September 20-21, 2019. In addition to building hope for the future of the pro-life movement in Nebraska, we will be celebrating 50 years of the Nebraska Catholic Conference and looking forward to the next 50 years.

At Friday's Banquet, we will welcome back former Executive Director of the Nebraska Catholic Conference, Greg Schleppenbach, to deliver the keynote address.

Saturday's conference will educate you on some of the latest developments in care for women, train you in compassionate pro-life messaging, and help prepare you to be an effective pro-life witness and advocate in your communities.
