Women's Conference FAQs
What is WINE: Women In the New Evangelization?
WINE is a creative and inspired national ministry to invigorate women's groups and parishes through encouraging, supporting, and nurturing women in the Catholic faith and by equipping and mobilizing women as intentional disciples of Christ.
Through much prayer, the women who have come together from around the country to form WINE, came to understand that whereas the Lord said to St. Francis, “Rebuild my Church,” for such a time as this, the Lord is calling to women, asking us to work in the beauty of our natural gifts as women, and is saying to us, “Heal my body.”
We are called to build the kingdom of God by using those special gifts and charisms He has given to us for that exact purpose, and right now, the body of Christ is battered, bruised and broken, and the Lord is asking you to help heal His body. Will you? He is asking you to nurture His body. Will you? He is asking you to build up His body by working in your gifts—gifts given to you for such a time as this!

What is the WINE: Catholic Women’s Conference?
The WINE: Catholic Women’s Conference is a unique event designed specifically for all Catholic women– married, single, and consecrated.
Sponsored by WINE: Women In the New Evangelization, a national Catholic women's ministry, the WINE: Catholic Women’s Conference is the perfect opportunity for women to gather to be refreshed and renewed in their faith. For the past four years, WINE has hosted a WINE: Catholic Women's Conference in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, each year selling out with over 1,200 participants. In 2016 & 2018, WINE worked with the Archdiocese of New Orleans to hold two very successful NOLA WINE: Catholic Women's Conferences. In October of 2017, WINE partnered with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to hold the first ever National Catholic Women's Conference, which sold out weeks in advance at 1,250 people! In September 2018, we held the first ever WINE: Catholic Women’s Conference in New Jersey! On March 1 & 2, 2019, WINE celebrated our 5th annual WINE Conference in Minneapolis!
Throughout the day, various speakers address Catholic perspectives on current news and issues affecting women and how we, as women of faith, can respond with an authentic feminine presence to transform every aspect of life and society. Each year has a specific theme designed to emphasize one of the many aspects of life as a Catholic woman. In addition to Mass, keynote presentations, and breakout sessions, women will have the opportunity to go to confession, pray with prayer teams, visit the various exhibit tables, and meet other Catholic women from throughout the area and beyond. Leaving this event, women will be renewed in their unique dignity and mission as Catholic women and be better equipped to bring the light and joy of the Gospel to their families, communities, friendships, and the world.
If I am not Catholic, can I still come to the conference?
Absolutely! All women are welcome to the WINE: Catholic Women’s Conference. The speakers will be dynamic and thought-provoking and our prayer will be restful and renewing. Even if you are not Catholic, many of the themes we will discuss at the conference will be relevant for you because we will be talking about the truths that are universal for all women. We hope that you will join us in seeking to discover the truth about who we are and in doing so, to find the path to true flourishing.
Who should attend the WINE: Catholic Women’s Conference?
There will be something for everyone at the WINE: Catholic Women’s Conference, so all are invited! The speakers will direct their remarks so that they are applicable and relevant to women in all three states of life – married, single, and religious.
