On Friday 5th August, this year, for the first time in the history of the Conference, the main programme took place within the Shrine and Basilica grounds whilst the healing, children, and youth ministries, with Bishop Philip Egan taking the role of lead celebrant.  The National Shrine and Basilica welcomed the New Dawn into the Heart of the Church – onto consecrated ground where countless saints, holy men, women, and children have stepped foot in honour of the Annunciation and for the celebration of Holy Mass.

Bishop Philip in readiness

The event saw amazing faith-filled and inspirational speakers from all over the world, a gifted music ministry, healing ministry and children’s and youth ministries, to come and experience the life-changing power of the Holy Spirit. This year’s youth ministry was headed up by two expert youth ministers from the USA, who provided fun, faith-filled, and practical ways for our young people to live out their Catholic Faith.

New Dawn are already planning 2023!
