Letter of Invitation


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is our great joy to invite you to the 13th annual University of Dallas Ministry Conference, scheduled for October 10 - 12, 2019. This event, which will be sponsored by the Diocese of Dallas and the University of Dallas and it is our great hope that the 2019 conference will attract even more faithful participants, who will have a blessed, faith-filled, and formative experience.

The Univeristy of Dallas Ministry Conference offers Catholics an opportunity to receive exceptional faith formation from nationally recognized speakers who will address relevant topics of faith, catechesis, education, theology, prayer and ministry. Participants will truly Walk Together in Faith, by attending these significant keynote addresses and ministry-specific breakout sessions, participating in Mass and prayer services, perusing the exhibitions, admiring the liturgical art display, and listening to Christian musical performances.

The conference is a wonderful opportunity for ongoing formation that can rejuvenate those working in the Church today as we assist those we serve to more deeply understand their Catholic faith and grow in spirituality. We encourage you to join the ministers from the administrative, parish and school levels from throughout the Diocese of Dallas and North Texas at this vital three-day gathering of ministry and faith formation.

We look forward to your participation at the thirteenth annual University of Dallas Ministry Conference on October 10 - 12, 2019 at the Irving Convention Center. May God bless you in the important work you do for our Church!


Most Reverend Bishop Edward J. Burns
Bishop of the Diocese of Dallas
Chancellor, University of Dallas
