  • "It is with great pleasure that I welcome Together in Holiness to our diocese. I encourage all married and engaged couples to attend this wonderful conference. I pray this will be a blessing to all couples as they renew their love and vocation to each other. May God give them strength as they embark on this mission to build a community of prayer within their families."
  • -Most Rev. J. Mark Spalding

Conference Date Change

As part of our mission to uphold the sanctity of life and family, the St. John Paul II Foundation is committed to the health and safety of all conference participants. Along with the Diocese, we have decided to reschedule this year’s Together in Holiness conference to 2021.
  • We know that Together in Holiness is a vital ministry to you as couples and families, and we desire to continue serving you through this conference. Please check back for conference updates in the coming months as the schedule and conference format are subject to change. We will continue to monitor local, state, and Diocesan guidelines, and we look forward, in hope, to the day we can gather again in-person.
  • We are truly blessed to serve you, and please be assured of our prayers for you and your families!

Danielle is author of several books, including "Momnipotent", "You Are Enough", and "Giving Thanks and Letting Go."  Her most recent book, "Manual for Marriage" (TAN Books 2020) pulls from the wisdom of the Church and lessons learned from real-life experience to reflect on the ideas of vocation, sacrament, sacrifice, mutual love, and home and family life.

It is in her primary vocation to marriage and motherhood that Danielle finds the inspiration for all of her work.
