2016 WINE Conference Recap

The 2016 WINE Conference Bears Much Fruit!


On Saturday, February 6, in balmy Minnesota, over 1,000 women came together to encounter God’s mercy, receive His graces, and learn to be ridiculously merciful! The result— a very, very fruitful day with many seeds planted, a few watered, several sprouting, and a “bunch” growing ever closer to the Lord in this vineyard!

Thank you to all of our wonderful speakers for sharing your hearts, your tears, your laughter, your stories! You blessed us immensely!

Thank you to all who gave of their time and talents to make this day so special for so many—the WINE core team, the WINE enthusiasts and volunteers, the staff of Mary, Mother of the Church, the priests and deacons, and the AWESOME Knight of Columbus. Through your selfless giving, you truly were channels of God’s mercy!

But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what the ladies had to say….

“Thank you for this day! The speakers were inspiring and the sisterhood filled my heart with joy! Good shopping and chocolate too!”
