What is the Ponder Conference Mission?

Our Mission

  • Are you a Catholic woman seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ? 

  • Do you long for the peace and joy that life with Him brings, but struggle to find the time and the way?

  • Do you find your spirit sometimes weary and in need of consolation, advice, encouragement, and rest?

  • Do you enjoy fellowship with like-hearted friends who want to walk with you on the journey?

 

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, please join us for the Sacramento Ponder Conference!
