Map and Directions


On Saturday, November 3, 2018, the diocese will host the 6th Annual Catholic Women’s Conference at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. There will be two simultaneous conferences taking place – one for English speakers and one for Spanish speakers. The conference features keynote speakers, breakout opportunities, music, vendors, box lunch, Adoration, Reconciliation, and Mass.

The $45 early-bird registration cost is available through October 16, 2018. Beginning on October 17, 2018, registration will be available for $55. After October 29, 2018, registration will only be available at the door for $60. Registration cost includes admission to the event, coffee hospitality through the day, and a boxed lunch. Cancellations will not be refunded for any reason. As usual, the conference is free for all professed women religious who live in community (i.e. professed nuns or Religious Sisters who are part of an order). Lunch will be provided. Parking will not be covered in the registration fee.

Our Keynote Speaker for the day is Michelle Benzinger. Michelle is a national women’s speaker, creative entrepreneur, and advocate for marginalized women and children. She is the visionary leader of Greenhouse Collective and the Creative Director of Meaningful Market Shop and Design House. She co-hosts a podcast, Abiding Together with Sr. Miriam Heidland and Heather Khym. Michelle and her husband, Chris, have served in global and domestic missions for the past 15 years with their six children (two adopted from Haiti) and now reside in Pensacola, Florida.

Our Musician is Marie Miller. Marie is a folk/pop singer/songwriter and recording artist living in Nashville, TN. Growing up in the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia, the third of ten children, Miller began singing at the age of seven. Her song "You're Not Alone" was played nationwide on pop radio, and her song "6'2" was featured on ABC's Dancing with the Stars. In September 2015 she performed for Pope Francis and 750,000 attendees in Philadelphia, PA. The performance was aired live on CNN and Fox News. Miller has opened for The Backstreet Boys, Five For Fighting, Kris Allen, and Carbon Leaf. Her music was featured in Billboard Magazine, NPR, and the Huffington Post. Marie was with us at our conference a few years ago, and we are excited to have her back!
