Thirst 2016


After a huge, positive turnout for THIRST three years ago, the chance to encounter the love of Christ in a setting like no other will return on Oct. 28-30.
The event will, once again, be held at the Bismarck Event Center and offer a schedule of influential speakers and evangelists in celebration of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Plans are still being finalized, but the list of speakers includes most notably, Cardinal Edwin O’Brien, who serves as the Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. This organization’s principal mission is to reinforce the practice of Christian life by its members in absolute fidelity to the pope and sustain and assist the religious, spiritual, charitable and social works and rights of the Catholic Church and Christians in the Holy Land.
Other speakers include: Fr. Dwight Longenecker, Fr. Scott Traynor, Leah Darrow, Fran Beach, Judy Hehr and Dr. Ray Guarendi, the popular author and radio talk show host. Local speakers include Monsignors James Shea and Thomas Richter. Other speakers will likely be added to the lineup, as well as entertainment and other features. More details will follow in the coming months.
The late Michelle Duppong, headed up the plans for the previous conference while working as the diocese’s coordinator for the Year of Faith in 2013. She shared these words about the THIRST 2013: “Please join us for this conference! Why? Because Jesus is real and you and I need Him. We need His love. We need His mercy and healing. We need His encouragement. We need to know what He has made us for. God will be changing people’s lives at this event—guaranteed. Will you let Him meet you?”
Her passion for bringing others to know the Lord rang true then, and still applies today. We invite you to attend the life-changing THIRST 2016!
Registration is now open online.

Happy Easter!

Resurrection of Christ.

He is Risen!  Alleluia!
