Using stewardship and effective communications to engage the faithful of your parish

Saturday, Aug. 3
9:00 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
St. Anne Catholic Church
Houston, TX

Cost: $10 per person, includes keynote, 20+ workshops in both English and Spanish, lunch, and more!
Free for clergy!

 

     

 

A conference for clergy, parish staff, stewardship committees, pastoral councils, finance councils, and anyone who wants to learn how to get parishioners more involved in parish life.

 


 


For each person, it is different.

Maybe engaging in parish life means moving from being a one-time volunteer to committing to a ministry. Maybe it means giving $10 a week instead of $5. Maybe it means attending Mass every Sunday instead of once or twice a month. Maybe it's a decision to pray more and possibly attend an adult faith formation class.

No matter how they choose to grow, the role of the parish is to reach out, invite, and provide opportunities for people to connect with one another and with the Church.

Join us for an amazing day of ideas, insights, and best practices to help connect with others, enliven the faithful, and draw everyone into deeper participation in parish life.


Feedback from last year's conference:

"The facilities, speakers, volunteers, and overall program were excellent. I think this is an OUTSTANDING way to make learning on stewardship, communication and engagement available to the local Church."

"I loved the opportunity to visit with members of parish staffs across the city. Those conversations are always validating and fruitful and most importantly, encouraging!"

"The workshops that I attended were beyond amazing. Great options/topics to choose from."

"I learned so much that I was able to take back to my parish and start using immediately."

"As a parish council member, it gave me insight on how to work with the parish staff to effectively motivate the people in our pews."

"As a young priest, it was extremely beneficial to hear ideas and insights on how to best reach our parishioners and lead them into a more full participation in the life of the parish."
