2:30 pmKeynote A
 Father Robert Barron - Living as the Image of God: Created for Joy and Love
 This talk will be an exploration of the extravagant biblical claim that human beings have been made in the image and likeness of God. Our likeness to God is revealed in our intelligence, our hunger for the good, our creativity, our freedom, and, above all, in our capacity for relationship. In living for the other, in giving ourselves away in love, we most resemble God, who is love.
10:30 amKeynote B
 Cardinal Robert Sarah - The Light of the Family in a Dark World
 God, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is like a family. The human person, created in the divine image and likeness, reflects the Trinity, most especially in the vocation of self-giving love. Sacred Scripture shows how darkness entered the world through original sin, damaging this vocation and rupturing humanity's relationship to God and neighbor. The consequences are all too evident in a world enveloped by darkness. The Church proclaims Jesus Christ as the light that shines in the darkness. By receiving the gift of charity through the Holy Spirit, the human person can love as Jesus did and remain in communion with God and others. The Christian family becomes the prime witness of this love and unity - a wellspring of faith, hope and love in today's world.
11:45 amBreakout Session B

Join internationally recognized authors, marriage and family experts, and radio hosts Dr. Gregory and Lisa Popcak in this dynamic workshop, where they share a treasure trove of practical ideas to transform your family life, including five essential habits that will empower you to experience the love that comes from God's own heart. Uncover the secrets that will help you celebrate every aspect of your life together as the gift God intends it to be.
3:00 pmKeynote C
 Prof. Helen Alvarť - Creating the Future: The Fertility of Christian Love
 Our Creator linked the love between a man and a woman with the creation of new life, when God could have made new life otherwise. What does this mean? This presentation will explore the myriad implications of God's linking love with new life - not only for the love between a man and a woman, and between parents and children, but also for the meaning of life. It will consider relevant material from human experience, science, Scriptures, and the Magisterium. Listeners will better understand why welcoming children is so often contested today, and yet so crucial for understanding the meaning of life as love.
4:15 pmBreakout Session C
 Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson - Caring for Creation: Pope Francis and Environmental Stewardship
 The ethical/moral import of ecology and economy for the family is undeniable. These days, the family can easily suffer a two-fold or a linked vulnerability from the viewpoint of the economy (lack of decent work resulting in insufficient salary, joblessness, insecurity, or trafficking and slavery) and from the viewpoint of ecology (malnutrition resulting from insufficient access to water and food, precarious housing, or wasted lands or fisheries). In looking at environmental degradation, climate-related disasters and our "throw-away" culture, clearly we've tilled too much and kept too little. Human and natural ecology are more linked than we often discuss, as seen in Pope Francis' new encyclical on this topic.
10:30 amKeynote D
 Dr. Juan Francisco de la Guardia Brin and†Mrs. Gabriela N. de la Guardia - A Gift from God: The Meaning of Human Sexuality
 Being created in the image of God has huge implications for the ultimate goals of our lives. When we understand that material creation has spiritual meaning, our views of ourselves, each other, and all of creation transforms. This keynote presentation will combine theology and scientific data to explore how we know that we are all called to live in generous, self-giving ways, whether we are married or celibate. Join us and learn how you can help create a society which values the other. Just be warned: participating in this session might cause you to reexamine the priorities in your own life!
11:15 amBreakout Session D
 Dr. Scott Hahn - Back to the Garden of Eden: Unearthing God's Covenant with†Humankind
 Scripture begins with the creation of man and woman in God's image and likeness (Gen 1:26-27), and concludes with a vision of the consummation of salvation historyóas "the wedding feast of the Lamb" (Rev 19:7-9). Indeed, the primordial form in which humanity bears God's "image and likeness" is the marital covenant. What is the meaning of "covenant" in Scripture? How does it differ from a contract? By exploring the divine institution of marriage-"in the beginning"-as a covenant, we discover profound and practical insights into the social and spiritual dimensions of God's saving plan for the human family.
3:00 pm

Keynote E

 Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle - The Family: A Home for the Wounded Heart
 Everyone struggles with painful situations such as loneliness, poverty, disability, illness and addiction, and unemployment. In our families and churches, we must walk with each other in love and support, even carrying those with great need. The Church, too, as our mother and teacher, comforter and guide, is a family-a family of faith. How can we help each other? And how can the Church bring the healing power of God's grace to us? Join this session and learn practical ways that we can grow in love, including participation in charity, prayer and the spiritual disciplines, scripture, and the liturgical and sacramental life.
4:15 pmBreakout Session E
 Ms. Janice Benton - Embracing the Struggles and Blessings of Disabilities
 Countless parishes embrace and celebrate the inherent dignity and worth of every person. Such communities foster the growth in faith of all parishioners, including those with disabilities, calling forth their gifts in service and meaningful participation. Yet they still encounter fear, ignorance, and rejection all too often. This workshop explores these conflicting realities and the ways in which families and parish communities can be sources of mercy, safety, friendship, and support for one another.
10:30 amKeynote F
 Cardinal SeŠn Patrick O'Malley, O.F.M. Cap. and Pastor Richard "Rick" Warren - The Joy of the Gospel of Life
 Christian families are called to be a leaven in our world, offering light and hope. In a world filled with suffering and sadness, our greatest witness is to live a life of daring faith and contagious joy, embodying the Beatitudes of Christ to make a difference. We can do this by embracing the Good News of the Gospel and trusting completely in God's plan for the family.
11:15 amBreakout Session F
 Archbishop Josť Horacio Gomez - "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor..."
 For Archbishop Gomez, immigration is about people. As leader of the nation's largest Catholic community, he serves more than 5 million Catholics who come from every corner of the world and speak more than 40 languages. Drawing on his experience in Los Angeles, and his own experience as a Mexican immigrant and naturalized citizen, he will present the "human face" of immigration today. Archbishop Gomez will explore the cruel impact of America's broken immigration system on families and children and explain why he believes reform is essential to protect human rights and renew "the soul of America."
