Where Spouses Discover God’s Plan for Their Family

  • "The more our families are formed as faith-filled disciples, the more our society can enjoy the peace and justice of the Kingdom of God. I encourage all couples to attend this year's Together in Holiness conference to learn how they can foster a culture of authentic discipleship in their own domestic churches."

Bishop David A. Konderla is the second of twelve children, son of the late David and Ann Konderla. He grew up in Bryan, Texas; graduated from Bryan High School in 1978; and worked for several years as a machinist before entering the seminary in 1985. After graduating from the University of Dallas in 1989 with a bachelor's degree in history, he earned his Master of Divinity from the University of St. Thomas and St. Mary's Seminary, and was ordained on June 3, 1995. Bishop Konderla served at St. Louis Parish in Austin and St. Luke's Parish in Temple before his assignment as associate pastor of St. Mary's Catholic Center in College Station. After almost four years with the Aggies, he was named as Vocation Director for the Diocese of Austin, where he served the diocese for four years. He then returned to St. Mary's as pastor and Director of Campus Ministry in August 2005. Bishop Konderla was appointed the fourth Bishop of Tulsa on May 13, 2016 by Pope Francis. He was ordained and installed as Bishop of the Diocese of Tulsa on June 29, 2016.

Joshua Bitting, Ph.D., serves as Program Director at the St. John Paul II Foundation where he oversees the Together in Holiness Formation series, a year-round marriage enrichment for small communities of spouses. 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 B.A. in philosophy at Southwestern College (Winfield, Kansas). Joshua attended Franciscan University of Steubenville where he earned his M.A. 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 recently completed his Ph.D. in theology and catechetics from the University of Notre Dame, Australia. Joshua and his beautiful wife, Amanda, have six children, and enjoy sharing the Gospel of the family in their primary vocation as spouses and parents.

BECKY GREENE
Catholic Speaker, Writer, and Co-host of “The Catholic Conversation”

Becky Greene is wife to husband Steve and mother to their 5 children, all of whom she's homeschooled from the beginning without ever turning to medication. A convert from agnostic feminism, she's written and presented on everything from authentic femininity, Natural Family Planning, and the Theology of the Body, to childrearing, motherhood, and homeschooling, for over a decade. When she's not attempting to get dinner on the table or summoning her children back to their math assignments, she can be found pulling her hair out over mismatched socks, sharp Legos on the floor, and temper tantrums about the toothpaste being too spicy. She and her husband also have a podcast entitled The Catholic Conversation, which is available on all major podcast platforms.
