Deborah DiPaulo sat down on her living room couch one Friday and turned on her laptop. She had cleared out her schedule for the whole evening and the next morning so that she could tune into the virtual event about to take place.
That event was the Catholic Family Conference, hosted completely online May 1-2. Through a series of lectures and panels, the conference brought together a host of prominent Catholic speakers and thousands of families from across the globe to reflect on the topics of faith, family, and finding hope in hardship.
“They touched me more than they realized,” said DiPaulo, 49, about the conference speakers, which included Angelus contributors Kathryn Jean Lopez and Dr. Scott Hahn. As a Catholic wife and mother of five living in Flowery Branch, Georgia, she found the virtual conference to be nourishment for her faith and family life.
