Perfect in Christ: Women’s conference draws over 600 to Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS — At the latest Archdiocesan Women’s Conference, participants took a long hard look in the mirror. By the end of the day organizers hoped to remind everyone how to see that the beauty of Christ emanates from them, no matter what they may look like on the outside or feel like on the inside.

Over 600 women from around the archdiocese gathered at the Double Tree Hilton Conference Center Jan. 26 to hear two nationally known Catholic speakers, celebrate Mass, engage in the sacrament of reconciliation, pray and experience fellowship. The day’s theme was “Perfect isn’t perfect.”

“With all of the internet and everything that portrays that we need to be perfect, we needed to put out the message that you don’t,” said Jennifer Clancy of Epiphany Parish in Mason City. “And that perfect does truly come from God and that to him we are perfect and really that’s all we need.”
