Christ Our Life

Conference Background
Christ Our Life Catholic Regional Conference is a non-profit conference being held at Wells Fargo Arena. It is a grassroots effort of faith springing up out of the heart of Iowa and blessed since its founding by Bishop Richard E. Pates and now our new Bishop, William Joensen of the Catholic Diocese of Des Moines.

How Did it Come About?
Christ Our Life Catholic Regional Conference was conceived in 2008 and was inspired by the Holy Spirit pulling on the hearts of two women in central Iowa. They prayed, gathered a dedicated and spiritually motivated group of volunteers, and secured world-renowned speakers. The result was a first-of-its kind Catholic conference. Now we are offering a fifth biennial Christ Our Life conference focused on bringing Catholics together, inspiring, celebrating and exploring their faith and bringing souls to Christ.

You Are Invited!
Please join us for a weekend of faith sharing, faith building and praise as we listen and learn from world-class speakers, renowned Catholic exhibitors and most importantly, share the sacraments.

2020 speakers include Fr. Donald Calloway, Sr. Miriam James, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, Mirjana Soldo, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, Jon Leonetti, and Steve Angrisano.
