Irondale, Alabama, July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mark your calendars! EWTN's 2013 Family Celebration is set to dazzle Aug. 17-18 at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex in Birmingham, Alabama!

Be renewed in your faith with inspirational talks by your favorite EWTN hosts! Enjoy a live taping of 'Women of Grace!' Learn what's at stake and how to take action during a special Religious Liberties Roundtable with EWTN President & Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw, Becket Fund General Counsel Kyle Duncan (who personally argued the Hobby Lobby case before the 10th Circuit), and other special guests!

"Don't miss" speakers will include "Journey Home" Host Marcus Grodi, "Super Saints" Hosts Bob & Penny Lord, and "EWTN Live" Host Fr. Mitch Pacwa. "Bookmark" Host Doug Keck will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

Mass will be celebrated by the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word on Saturday and, on Sunday, EWTN is honored to announce that Birmingham Bishop Robert J. Baker has agreed to serve as our celebrant.

Throughout the weekend, you'll have opportunities to mix and mingle with EWTN's hosts and the Friars at the "Family Corner" booth, get your books signed at the "Meet the Author" booth, and browse the EWTN Religious Catalogue shop. And, if you bring your kids, be sure to swing by the Faith Factory and say "Hey!" to Brother Leo, who's chilling out with Pete the Penguin and coming up with Catholic activities for all ages to enjoy.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for Confession as well as Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. It's a day no fan of EWTN will want to miss - and, best of all, it's free!
