MADISON -- The Diocese of Madison has agreed to be a host site for the 2017 New Evangelization Summit.

This exciting North American summit will take place in Ottawa, Canada, and will be live-streamed to the auditorium at the Bishop O'Connor Center on Friday and Saturday, May 12 and 13.

The New Evangelization Summit will give us the opportunity to answer God's call to renew our faith and ignite a passion in our hearts to share it with others. All the faithful are invited to attend.

We will resume on Saturday, May 13, with Mass at 8 a.m. in the chapel and the program, which includes music; talks by Fr. Michael White, Tom Corcoran, Patrick Sullivan, Meghann Baker, Bishop Robert Barron, Peter Herbeck, and Michael Dopp; lunch; and breaks running from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The cost for the summit is $45, which includes Saturday lunch. Purchase your tickets on the website. Space is limited, so register early.
