Event Information

Friday, Oct. 23rd: Underwriter Dinner

6PM: Family Holy Hour + Benediction.  

Help us to begin the weekend with “the better part”—prayer, along with silence and song, resting our heads on the heart of the Savior.  Any and all are welcome. 

7:15PM: Underwriter Dinner*

For those looking for that something extra, we will host an Underwriter’s Dinner to follow the Holy Hour, providing guests an opportunity to meet the Ponder team and our conference speakers, in an enchanting setting, under the stars. Guests are welcome to come solo or to invite their significant other to join for an evening of great food, signature cocktails and excellent company!


The Holy Hour and Holy Mass will be celebrated at the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish, 4123 Robertson Avenue, Sacramento, California 95821.

The Underwriter’s Dinner and Ponder Conference will be held in the backyard of a lovely private home.  The address will be shared with participants by email, approximately one week prior to the event.
