Few things are more stressful and overwhelming to navigate than dating in today’s world. But it can be a little easier with some really sound, thoughtful advice. Even better if it’s from a faithfully Catholic perspective!
If you’re ready for a fresh perspective on dating as a Catholic, you won’t want to miss the upcomingRelate 2023 Conference that will take place February 10-11, 2023. Best of all, it’s free!
Hosted by CatholicMatch and billed as “the premiere online dating event for Catholics of all ages,” Relate promises to be a haven of expert advice and insight to give Catholics new confidence to enjoy the dating process.
Besides powerful presentations, the event includes various opportunities to connect live with other single Catholics.
Mariette Rintoul, community experience director at CatholicMatch, met her husband through CatholicMatch, and shared with Aleteia why Relate 2023 was created.
We see a real gap in available support for Catholic singles out there right now, and we wanted to create a dynamic opportunity for singles to gather; learn from experts on everything dating, relationships, and marriage; and meet other prospective singles. Our entire world has gone virtual and because CatholicMatch has been successfully connecting single faithful men and women online for years, we really wanted to take our experience in creating divine connections to a whole new level by creating a massive online event for singles who need the help of the Church to understand dating and love in today’s world as well as find ways to meet, connect and marry in a vocation of love.
Here’s a description from the Relate 2023 website of what you can expect from the event:
