Upcoming Events

Creative Justice: A Conference on Disability & the Church

June 10, 2023

10:30am-4:30pm ET

How do we influence our churches and organizations to nurture adaptive communities that work for the just consideration of all in society? This season of continued disruption and change presents unique opportunities to recalibrate how we express our solidarity and concern for every person, regardless of their life situation. Creative Justice explores the beautiful and innovative ways our faith communities and ecclesial leaders can build constructive pathways of mutuality and concern reaching every part of society. This conference will facilitate a deep conversation led by church leaders and leading experts with and without disabilities on the theme.


Management and Leadership: Why Mission Needs Both

Tuesday, June 13 2023 | 1pm Eastern | Noon Central | 10am Pacific Priests and parish leaders across North America want to see their parishes come alive. But the reality is that without a clear understanding of the importance of both leadership and management in the work of parish renewal, conflict and discouragement can quickly emerge. This is why you're invited to our June From the Trenches event, where you will: - Discover the importance of both leadership and management - Learn how to integrate these support structures into your parish effectively - Be equipped to catalyze your parish's missional potency!
