Ministry Tracks

After reviewing suggestions from last year's conference, we decided to offer ministry tracks at our conference. Each track has two workshops to provide our attendees with a well-rounded and full experience of formation, group discussion, and networking within the ministry they serve.

At registration, attendees will be asked to choose one (1) ministry track. To assist parishes to grow and expand ministry life, we're also offering our NEW Parish Group Rate. Parishes can register one person per track for a discounted rate and attend the conference as a pastoral team. After the conference, your team can get together and exchange with each other all that you have learned. By registering someone for each ministry track, your parish will reap the benefit of everything this conference has to offer, including post-conference support.

Don't have seven members on your pastoral team? Don't sweat it! The Parish Group Rate is a great way to engage new volunteers by inviting those in your parish community who may be interested in becoming involved in parish ministry work. This conference could be exactly what they need to give their full "Yes!" to God for the work He may be calling them to do.

We encourage you to register as early as possible as spaces are limited for each workshop.
