Upcoming young adult conference to explore “The Good, The True, The Beautiful”

The second annual young adult conference, sponsored by St. Benedict Church in Anchorage, will take place June 21-22. This year’s theme is “The Heights: Encountering the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.”

The two-day event includes a Friday night social with a pizza dinner provided by Moose’s Tooth. This will be followed by a live concert with Connor Flanagan, a nationally known singer-songwriter who writes music that “resonates with the human experience.” Religious brothers from the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal will be part of the conference.

On Saturday, attendees will gather at St. Benedict’s for coffee at 9 a.m., followed morning and afternoon workshops. The day will include a lunch break, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and opportunities for confession. The conference concludes that night with a keynote talk and Mass, followed by a BBQ social. Babysitting is available. For more information, visit TheHeightsAK.com.

Mother’s marriage movement forms Anchorage group

CanaVox, an international marriage movement founded and led by mothers, has launched a group in Anchorage.

The group meets monthly and provides readings on natural law, practical wisdom and science to equip women to speak effectively about the beauty of marriage. According to the website, canavox.com, the goal is to bring people together “to engage in the art of conversation with others” as “we explore the various issues affecting the marriage culture in a calm, thoughtful setting.”

CanaVox groups typically read short essays, personal stories, and view videos to spark discussions.
