The Diocese of Victoria is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Diocesan Marriage and Family Life Conference This July 4 – 6, plan to join families from all across the Diocese to relax, play and grow closer to God and your family all in one weekend! 

Last year, 200 moms, dads, kids, teens, babies and grandparents from across the Diocese of Victoria played, prayed and were inspired by Bishop Gary Gordon and the fellowship of other Catholic families. 

This year, the event has been extended to two nights at a larger facility, Camp Barnard in Sooke, a 250-acre Scout camp featuring a lake with canoe rentals, an around-the-lake trail and full kitchen facilities and bathrooms. Cabins are available or you may bring your own RV or tent. Meals are provided: please bring your own dishes and utensils. 

Formation activities for the kids and teens will be provided while the parents are nurtured in their own faith. Fr. Dean Henderson will be Chaplain for the weekend to celebrate Mass, hear Confessions and will also be one of the speakers.
