2020 Catholic HOPE Conferences Retreat

Since 2017 the HOPE Conference has been a one-day event that brings together Catholics in the Archdiocese of Boston and the surrounding area of New England. Each year has a different theme drawn from Scripture and includes speakers, Adoration, Mass, and more. Because of COVID, the event has moved entirely online. Join us this year on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother for a one-day retreat-style conference themed "Be not afraid" (Jn 12:15). Be prepared to begin with Mass at 8am and learn Five Keys to Freedom in Christ throughout the day.
