ST. LOUIS MARIAN CONFERENCE 2018

WELCOME TO THE 19th ANNUAL ST. LOUIS MARIAN CONFERENCE
"Weep not for me, but for your children"
January 12 - 14, 2018

Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel
9801 Natural Bridge Road
St. Louis, MO 63134
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The theme for our conference is from the Eighth Station where Jesus meets the daughters of Jerusalem. They weep upon seeing the great suffering of Jesus, but He says “weep not for me, but for your children.” Jesus, laden with sorrow and physical pain, suffers from the offenses and pain of our sins. Parents strong in faith, laboring in love, and finding endurance through hope shed many tears through the years over their children. We renew our faith, hope and love during this spiritual weekend when we commit to never offend Our Lord.

In our 19th annual conference as in the others we look forward to the movement of the Holy Spirit no matter how dark things may seem in our lives and in the world around us. In coming together we are Church. We give praise to Our Lord and to His mom and the voice of prayer is heard. Our wonderful speakers work hard in giving the guidance and teaching we are sustained by through the coming year.

The Renaissance was recently renovated and is beautiful, with large rooms. We encourage room reservations so you get the best deal. The hotel is two minutes from Lambert International Airport with free continuous shuttle service. They are owned by Marriott and reservations may be made at the Marriott reservation number: (800) 468-3571, or the Renaissance local number: (314) 429-1100. Please ask for the special rate for the Marian Conference at the Renaissance. Secure hotel reservation and room preference by calling early!

There will be sessions directed to the Young Adults, allowing them to attend and meet the keynote speakers. We do not want them separated to another part of the hotel and it is good for the family to hear what the youth are hearing. There will be opportunity for anyone to meet with questions with the individual speaker. We will have some scholarships to cover the registration fee for youth (age 12 to 25). Additionally, any youth attending with a family member who reserves a room, the youth registration to the conference will be waived. *** On-site registration available! ***
