Bishop Lucker Lecture to be held virtually

NEW ULM — Johnnette Benkovic Williams will be the speaker for the annual Bishop Lucker Lecture, sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of New Ulm. Due to the COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, the lecture will broadcast live at 7 p.m. Monday, March 8.

She will speak on “The Journey in Faith.”

In 1981, after years of being a non-practicing Catholic, Williams experienced a deep conversion back to her Catholic faith that sparked a new vocation — one of sharing the Gospel message through the utilization of media. She has been an inspiring and consistent presence on Catholic radio (1987) and in Catholic television (1988) ever since.

She is founder and president of Women of Grace, a Catholic apostolate for women featuring several outreaches, including conferences, media, study groups, and more. She is also founder and president of Living His Life Abundantly International Inc., a not-for-profit corporation.
