Made for Love

Join us for an event highlighting the dangers of internet pornography, internet stalking, sexting, abuse — and what we can do about it. 

The Diocese of Brownsville is sponsoring the “Made for Love” Conference from 3 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 6 at St. Pius X Parish in Weslaco. The event, which will include workshops for high school youth and adults, will feature talks from experts from across the country. Presenters will include Sean Forrest, founder of the Connecticut-based Movin’ With The Spirit, Inc., a not-for-profit Catholic ministry dedicated to renewing the Church and society; Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter/pianist Audrey Asaad of Nashville, the daughter of a Syrian refugee and Father Sean Kilcawley, an Army veteran who serves as the director of the Office of Family Life and Evangelization for the Diocese of Lincoln, Neb.

The information presented at the conferences is provided by Integrity Restored, an apostolate whose mission is to restore the integrity of individuals, spouses, and families that have been affected by pornography and pornography addiction. Integrity Restored provides education, training, encouragement, and resources to break free from pornography, heal relationships, and to assist parents in preventing and responding to pornography exposure which is so devastating in the lives of our children.
