I just want to give a little plug for the Marian Conference that is being held in Toowoomba this coming Saturday, 5 November 2011, 8am – 4pm, at Holy Name Parish School Hall, 190 Bridge Street, Toowoomba.

See the flyer: MarianConferenceNov2011.

One message I received about the conference said the following:

One more reason for attending is:-
Holy Name Parishioners are praying that  this conference to honour Our Blessed Mother, will be the start of a turn around for the Diocese of Toowoomba, which was once a great Eucharistic and Marian Diocese.
Be part of this movement of the Holy Spirit for reconciliation and unity and come to the Marian Conference to honour Our Lady of The Southern Cross the Patroness of the Toowoomba Diocese.
As the flyer indicates, one of the speakers at the Conference is Bishop Finnigan, the Apostolic Administrator of Toowoomba.  Even if you can’t be there, please remember the conference in your prayers, and do continue praying for the Diocese of Toowoomba.
