Mary Mother of the Church Pastoral Center




We invite you to join us and parish leaders from around the Archdiocese at our 7th annual catechetical conference August 24-26 at the Mary, Mother of the Church Pastoral Center. Centered on our theme of Stepping Into the Mystery, we will gather, pray, and learn together how to lead people to a life-changing encounter and relationship with Jesus Christ in preparing them for the Sacraments.

Thursday and Friday are intended for catechetical/formation staff.  Saturday is open to parish staff, catechists, small group leaders, and all others who pass on the faith.    Each day will include general sessions, workshops, Mass, lunch, networking time as well as important ministry updates.
