|2:20pm||Mrs. Laura Berquist||
Homeschooling provides the necessary academic, social, and moral formation for children, and strengthens family life. It comes naturally, because parents are the primary educators of their children just by being parents. Homeschooling is important, it is fun, and it is doable.
|3:00pm||Fr. Joseph Mary Brown||
Jesus Christ has commanded us to love one another as He loves us. How do I incarnate this commandment of love in my family life, workplace, and everyday activities? What does it mean to love as Jesus loves? These and other questions on fraternal charity in the home and the world will be addressed.
|4:00 – 6:00pm||Vendor Area Opens/Dinner|
|6:00pm||Mrs. Virginia Seuffert||
Catholic home education has evolved from a tiny group of parents to a powerful social movement. Learn how homeschool graduates are using their authentic Catholic education and solid academic training to change the country and the Church, and how your children can be counted among them.
|7:00pm||Fr. Paul Weinberger||
The 500th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe is in only 19 years: 2031. The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, guarded and cherished in Mexico City, was the source of a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit throughout North America. Over 9 million were baptized over the next decade through this miraculous image.
|9:30am||Fr. Joseph Mary Brown||
Because of a turning away from the Cross, modern man hides from the God of Mercy. As he refuses to look at the Cross, he refuses to see his sinfulness and the need to receive God’s infinite mercy.
|10:30am||Mrs. Virginia Seuffert||
You can provide a top flight education from preschool to high school. Reach your learning goals with a method proven by centuries of success, emphasizing a well-ordered school day, virtues like obedience and diligence, memorization, and a curriculum based on the finest thoughts of Western culture.
|11:30am||Mr. Dale Ahlquist||
Many parents who are investigating the possibility of homeschooling wonder how well their children will make the adjustment. This talk will offer a concrete look into that process and how you and your children can renew and refresh a real love of learning together.
|12:30 – 2:00pm||Lunch|
|2:00pm||Mrs. Laura Berquist||
Our goal, for ourselves and our children, is Heaven. We need to form our children to live well here and now, and to attain the Beatific Vision. For the Catholic, this is the first end to which character formation is directed. This talk focuses on practical techniques that help children acquire the virtues they will need.
|3:00pm||Mr. Dale Ahlquist||
Chesterton was one of the most important Catholic writers of the 20th century: prophetic, profound, and paradoxical. After disappearing from the curriculum for two generations, there is a growing revival of interest in his writings. Delightfully counter-cultural and amazingly timely, Chesterton’s common sense is just the cure for the insane ideas of the modern world.
