  • Barbara McGuigan, an EWTN radio host who founded Voice of Virtue International in 2001, inspires people to commit to the Church’s message of virtuous living and chaste love.

Msgr. Joseph F. Schaedel, vicar general and the pastor of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish in Indianapolis, is the celebrant and homilist for the conference Mass.
