New England Convocation for Catechetical Leadership

Last chance to register!!!

The biennial New England Convocation for Catechetical Leadership is being held at the Springfield, MA Marriott on August 5-7, 2011 (Note: there is a Pre-Convocation on RCIA on August 4-5.

Eight good reasons to be at the Convocation:

  • One day registrations - come either Friday, Saturday or Sunday only - meals and events and parking included in the one day

  • Great speakers of international renown (e.g. John Allen, Vatican Correspondent and author). You don't need to travel any farther than Springfield for this opportunity

  • Multicultural perspective - speakers in Spanish and simultaneous translation available

  • Bishop Richard Malone will facilitate the panel discussion on Saturday about the future of Religious Education

  • Wonderful opportunities for conversation about pastoral work

  • Great food!

  • Camaraderie with those of us who "labor in the vineyards" of New England

  • And most importantly, we will miss you if you don't come - your perspective will be missing.

Please consider being with us, and bringing or encouraging staff members or parish members who would benefit from this.
