  • "This is a one-day conference that's well worth any couple's time. Great topics and information that provided helpful takeaways and action points for me and my wife. A rare opportunity too for Catholic couples to meet so many others in one spot (outside of our local parish) who share our values and goals. A day well spent!"

Speakers

JOSHUA BITTING, PhD
Program Director

Dr. Joshua Bitting serves as Program Director for the Together in Holiness Formation series. Born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Joshua came into full communion with the Catholic Church on June 22nd, 2003, the Feast of Corpus Christi while completing his BA in philosophy at Southwestern College.  Joshua attended Franciscan University of Steubenville where he earned his MA in theology. Afterwards, he had the opportunity to study at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Santa Croce) in Rome, Italy. Since then, he has served the Church in various capacities at both the parish and diocesan levels. He earned his PhD from the University of Notre Dame, Sydney, Australia, writing his dissertation on the formation of spouses and families as domestic churches.  Joshua and his beautiful wife, Amanda, have six children and enjoy sharing the Gospel of life in their primary vocation as spouses and parents.

STEVE AND BECKY GREENE
Catholic Speakers, Writers, and Co-hosts of “The Catholic Conversation”

Steve and Becky Greene present together and individually about the Church’s teachings on the Theology of the Body, marriage, family, Natural Family Planning, and pro-life issues. A cradle Catholic, Steve is the Director for the Kino Catechetical Institute for the Diocese of Phoenix, who regularly writes and speaks on true masculinity, fatherhood, and modern philosophical errors. His articles have been featured in Crisis Magazine and The Catechetical Review. Becky, a former agnostic feminist, writes and speaks on her conversion story, authentic femininity, and motherhood. She also homeschools the couple's five children and helps her color-blind husband match his ties and shirts. When they're not shuttling children to sports, stepping on Legos, or telling someone to pick up dirty socks, the couple hosts the popular radio show “The Catholic Conversation" with the Cradle and the Convert, which airs on the Phoenix Relevant Radio station AM1310 and via podcast on iTunes and Soundcloud.

KENDRA TIERNEY
Wife, Mom, Writer, CatholicAllYear.com

Kendra Tierney lives in an It’s a Wonderful Life-style fixer-upper in the wilds of unincorporated Los Angeles County with her husband, their ten kids aged 1 to 18, and some chickens. Kendra is a retired pilot and flight instructor who is putting her English degree to use as a homeschool mom and writer about all things Catholic. Her passion is liturgical living. What began quietly in their home with their children as a way to introduce the lives of the saints and the beautiful history and tradition of our Catholic faith now reaches hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Through her blog, CatholicAllYear.com, social media accounts, YouTube videos, and dozens of books including The Catholic All Year Compendium: Liturgical Living for Real Life, and the newly-released Catholic All Year Prayer Companion, she shares how obscure Catholic traditions have helped the Tierneys form a strong family culture and Catholic identity, and have fun doing it.

REV. JUSTIN FLETCHER
Pastoral Administrator, Presentation Catholic Church

A native of western Oklahoma, Father Justin Fletcher has had a long journey into the Catholic Church. He was raised in the Church of Christ before becoming an Episcopalian in college, after which he served as an Episcopal priest for three years. That ministry provoked in him the need for the full communion of the Church, and he became Catholic in 2016. He studied at Oklahoma Christian University and Duke University, focusing primarily on patristic theology and biblical studies. Before ordination he served as a youth minister at St Michael’s in Cary, NC, and was ordained to the priesthood in 2019. He is incardinated in the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter, and currently serves as the pastoral administrator of Presentation of the Lord Catholic Church in Montgomery, TX.
