The World Apostolate of Fatima USA and the National Blue Army Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Washington, N.J., are hosting an online conference, Reclaiming the Family through Fathers, to celebrate the Year of St. Joseph. It will be held on Saturday, May 1, 9:30 am-1:30 pm EDT. The date is the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.

The conference will feature three speakers: Fr. David Guffey, CSC, National Director of Family Theater Productions, producer of PRAY: The Life of Patrick Peyton; Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, best-selling author and acclaimed speaker, and Devin Schadt, author and co-founder of the Fathers of St. Joseph, an apostolate that works for the renewal of authentic fatherhood.

“Our Lady of Fatima is a beacon of hope and light for these times, and St. Joseph has a  prominent role to play in the ongoing battle for marriage and family,” said the World Apostolate of Fatima. “This conference presents solutions to the first steps in rebuilding the domestic Church — by reclaiming the vocation of fathers.”

The National Blue Army Shrine Chaplain Fr. Ronan Murphy will lead a Consecration to St. Joseph, followed by First Saturday devotions, Holy Mass, and Divine Mercy Chaplet.

Registered conference attendees will receive free streaming of the movie PRAY: The Life of Patrick Peyton and other perks.
