The Mini-Conference with Dr. Ralph Martin was a beautiful ceremony.
The WOCCR Team and St. Edward’s Staff wish to thank everyone who participated in the Ralph Martin Conference held on September 23-24, 2022. We wish to thank Bishop Smith for celebrating the opening Mass along with Deacons Leo Rasca and Del DeSart and the Knights of Columbus. The music team, Sonset Worship, graced us with their Holy Spirit talent and gifts during the Mass and throughout the conference. Dina Marie Hale a wonderfully gifted radio host was the Emcee. She did a fantastic job this weekend, especially when she was so heavily involved with the Rosary Bowl the following weekend. And then of course, there is YOU. Without you, there could be no conference.
Thank you for taking the time, the travel, the expense. You are the reason for all the work that WOCCR and the St. Edward’s staff did to organize and implement this conference. It was really all about you. We are hoping that you will share what you learned with others. You may also share the video streaming links with your friends and families if you wish. I believe the links are good through March 23, 2023.
Dr. Ralph Martin gave five talks — one on Friday night and four on Saturday. They revolved around two of his books: “A Church in Crisis – A Pathway Forward” and “The Fulfillment of all Desire”. If you are interested, you can purchase these books at Amazon.com or Renewal Ministries. He brought 80 copies with him and sold every one.
Sr. Patricia Marie Landin received a prophecy during the conference.
“My people, be alert to my words and follow me in every way, The Holy Spirit is upon you. Do not forget your first love. Do not let others deceive you but place your trust in me. I am your God; I am closer to you than you will ever know. My will for you is perfect, so please listen to my words so that you are able to respond to my directions for the conversion of the world as people are dying without anyone to pray for them.
Pray, my people and open your hearts in sharing me and my message of Salvation. Rejoice in my love for you always because I love you. “
The WOCCR Team sent out a short questionnaire to everyone who attended or streamed the video. It would be really helpful to us if those who registered, would take about five minutes to fill it out and send it back. Thank you.

Because of COVID, and probably the internet, some of our Catholic Bookstores are very close to closing their doors. Please support the store near you. It would be very sad to lose them. They are a visible beacon in the darkness of Oregon and Washington.
