“Gather Us In” Conference
The Commission’s main event is the “Gather Us In” Conference, which has been every other year at the DCU Center in Worcester since 2002. “Gather Us In” is designed to bring women of the Catholic faith together for a day of reflection, learning, discussion, and enlightenment, all in the service of enriching our spiritual lives. This has always been a very popular event, attracting over 800 women to each conference.
