Bob Canton

Bob has had a dramatic conversion and been gifted with a charismatic healing ministry in over 50 countries.  He has served in leadership of the Renewal on both the national and international level for many years.  He is a delightful speaker. Prepare to be amazed as he witnesses to the power of Jesus and prays for healing throughout the weekend.

Danny Abramowicz

Danny was a star in the National Football League in the 60s and 70s.  He is President and Founder of Crossing the Goal Ministries and author of Crossing the Goal: A Saint Goes Marching On.  Danny serves on the Board of Directors of EWTN and has been involved in the evangelization of Catholic men for over 30 years.  We are happy to welcome him home.

Healing! Everybody needs and wants healing.  The theme this year is based on the Lord’s word to the Israelites as they traveled through the desert on their way to the Promised Land.  The Lord promises to be the healer of His people, conditional of course upon obedience.  They must listen to the Lord’s voice, do what is right in the Lord’s eye, heed God’s commandments and obey God’s law (cf. Exodus 15.26).

God is eternal and never changes.  Likewise, God’s word is eternally true and will never passes away.  Therefore, God extends His offer of healing to us today, but requires our obedience just as the Israelites of old.  Our conference will emphasize submission to God’s holy word, as well as acceptance of His promise of healing.

Do you need healing – spiritually, emotionally, or physically?  Be part of this conference to receive healing ministry though God’s word: “He sent forth His word and healed them” (Psalm 107:20).  We invite you to approach the Lord, you Healer, and obey His word of truth.  Come, join with us!

Al Mansfield, Conference Chairman

Every session has a fee, including Friday night and Sunday morning Healing Session.  Fee is for the talk and Healing Service, not for the Sunday Mass.  Seating is limited and those who register for the conference will have priority for seats at Mass.
