Do you know about the National Catholic Singles Conference?
The National Catholic Singles Conference (NCSC) was created to give single Catholics the opportunity to meet other like-minded singles and learn more about and share their Faith. Talks by dynamic speakers, time for prayer, and various social opportunities create an intense and inspiring weekend! Over the last seven years, since February 2005, over 3,500 singles have participated in conferences in Denver, Chicago, San Diego, Clearwater Beach, FL and San Antonio, TX. In February we held our 10th conference in San Antonio.
Sr. Helena Burns, FSP, will be speaking on the role of media in as it shapes the way we look at others and the world around us.

She is finishing her M.A. in Media Literacy Education; has a B.A. in theology and philosophy from St. John’s University, NYC; studied screenwriting at UCLA; and holds a Certificate in Pastoral Youth Ministry.

She is currently writing and producing a documentary on the life of Blessed James Alberione: MediaApostle.com.
Sr. Helena has been giving media workshops to youth and adults all over the U.S. and Canada since the 90’s, and believes that media can be a primary tool for sharing God’s love and salvation. Her websites are www.hellburns.blogspot.com and www.pauline.org
