Working from Why
This conference replaces the Biennial Development and Stewardship Conferences, and incorporates other departmental conferences that are held annually. The Church’s ministries all work together towards the same goal – to bring people to a deeper relationship with Jesus and help one another on our journey to heaven.
The morning will consist of an opening message from Bishop Jenky, a keynote speaker, ADA announcements, and lunch.
Even though the ministries have the same goal, they are also very unique in how to reach this goal. Therefore, the afternoon will offer breakout sessions specific to these ministries.
- Development & Stewardship
- Respect Life
- Catholic Charities
- Evangelization & Faith Formation
Registration is FREE but REQUIRED (will include lunch and gifts)
Open to everyone: leadership, staff, volunteers, lay people!
Meet The Keynote
Our culture is very focused on mission. Our Parishes have the Ultimate Mission of making disciples, setting souls on fire for Christ, and participating in the salvation of all. How many people know that’s your why? Which ministries are focused on making this a reality? Before we talk about the What and the How (Stewardship and Evangelization) let’s get clear on our why!
