From the Convenors

The Renaissance of Marriage conference series exists to draw together the nation’s best thinkers and practitioners on marriage formation throughout the life cycle for a feast of stimulating talks and workshops.

Continuing in the tradition of St John Paul, Pope Francis calls us to turn our attention to the practical applications of Theology of the Body. In a world that is fractured by broken relationships and widespread disillusionment, the healing mercy of God is desperately needed.

Join us as we collectively discern and discuss how we, as the people of God and leaders in his Church, can be both the ‘light on the hill’ illuminating the darkness and the ‘field hospital’ tending the wounds of the broken-hearted.

Organised in three streams (Youth/Schools, Engaged/Newlywed, Enrichment/Support), the program features high energy IMPACT talks followed by deep-dive workshops with each speaker.
