Families are invited to come and grow in faith as a family at the 2019 EWTN Family Celebration, coming to Denver Sept. 21.
From inspirational talks by EWTN TV and radio hosts to activities for the little ones in the family, this year’s celebration promises to be full of excitement and spiritual growth.
The celebration will be held at the University of Denver’s Magness Arena Saturday, Sept. 21 at no cost. Doors open at 8 a.m., and the event will conclude with Holy Mass celebrated by Bishop Jorge Rodriguez.
The theme of the event is “Faith can move mountains,” and headline speakers include Father Mitch Pacwa and Johnnette Benkovic.
Father Mitch Pacwa is the host of “EWTN Live” and “Scripture and Tradition.” Father Pacwa began hosting series for EWTN back in 1984. He was chosen by EWTN founder Mother Angelica to teach and share the Gospel during his appearance as a guest on “Mother Angelica Live” that same year. In the year 2000, he established Ignatius Productions, a Catholic media production apostolate, whose mission is to teach people the Sacred Scriptures, educate Catholics about their faith and promote unity and understanding within the Mystical Body of Christ. In addition to his work at EWTN, Father Pacwa also leads pilgrimages to and writes books about the Holy Land, and travels around the country to give retreats.
Johnnette Benkovic, host of EWTN’S radio and television show “Women of Grace,” will be sharing her testimony and presenting spiritual topics. In addition to her own television and radio shows, she is also a popular conference speaker, retreat master, and seminar presenter. She has written several books on topics including prayer and spirituality, authentic femininity, conversion and the dangers of new age movements.
Other presenters that will be part of this event will include Dr. Davis Anders, host of “Called Communion”; Fathers Agustino Torres, Angelus Montgomery, and Innocent Montgomery, hosts of “Icons”; as well as the Chairman and CEO Michael P. Warsaw, among others.
The host of the Family Celebration will be President of EWTN Doug Keck, who is well-known as host of “EWTN Bookmark” and many of the Global Catholic Network’s live events.
This event is for the whole family. Children will get to see and talk to some of their favorite characters from EWTN’s Kids Faith Factory and learn more about the faith in an interactive learning environment at the EWTN Kids Booth.
In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to spend time in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and go to confession during the family celebration.
