Spiritual Enhancement Chair​​

Jean Gatz is a nationally known inspirational speaker, retreat leader and award-winning author. Weaving God’s word together with gentle humor and stories of her own faith journey, Jean encourages Catholic Daughters to meet their challenges with wisdom, courage, faith and grace. Jean was scheduled to present 4 sessions at our national convention in Dallas in 2020. So we are excited to have her deliver the opening and closing keynotes for our virtual convention on May 1.

Jean has written 8 books, including one she just wrote for Catholic Daughters: “Unwrapping God’s Gifts in Your Life.” Jean understands we’ve all had our share of trials, disappointments and losses that test our faith. While we can’t be in charge of everything that happens to us, we CAN be in charge of how we respond by asking God for His help and guidance.
