Registration for the Fullness of Truth Conference in Tyler on Feb 20-21 is continuing, according to event organizer Charlie Mercer.
The well-known conference is returning to Tyler for the second time, and the theme of this year’s event is, “Why the Cross? Salvation and Suffering in Scripture.”
Attendees will experience a deeper meaning to Lent and will leave with a better understanding of why God allows suffering and how suffering, which unites the faithful with Jesus Christ in his passion, can help on the path toward salvation.
Beginning with a delicious community meal for the First Friday in Lent, Fr. Leo Patalinghug, known for his television program, Grace Before Meals on EWTN, will present what it means to the Human Family to gather around a table.
Saturday’s speakers include Patalinghug, Dr. John Bergsma, associate professor of theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, and Bishop Joseph E. Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler.
The conference will take place at Bishop Gorman High School in Tyler and a full bookstore will be on site for participants.
Priests will be available for confession through the conference and Saturday will conclude with a 5:30 p.m. Holy Mass at the Chapel of Sts. Peter & Paul with Bishop Strickland.
