There were more than 90 participants, of which more than 25 were children. The event consisted of several low Masses each day, a daily Solemn High Mass, daily sung Office of Prime, daily Sung Vespers, daily conferences for adults and children, and activities for children, Rosary, Gregorian Chant workshop, Altar server workshop, etc. The kick-off Solemn High Mass at the Carmelite Convent of the Incarnation (where St.Teresa entered the religious life) was spectacular. On the Saturday Solemn Vespers was celebrated.

The conference was attended by priests of the Fraternity of St Peter and diocesan clergyfrom several different Spanish dioceses, some deacons of the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP), and some Carmelite and Franciscan friars, religious sisters, and several diocesan seminarians. These provided conferences, activities and the liturgy.
