"Such as dealing with addiction in your family. Dealing with finances. Dealing with the real meaning of marriage, especially as you form your children and they get older and they are faced with a lot of challenges faced with contemporary culture, especially here in the West.”

Even though it's  all organized by the Catholic Church, all faiths are welcome. Speakers from other faiths will be taking part and even from different Christian denominations, like Protestant Pastor, Rick Warren from the Saddleback church.
