Dioceses and parishes across Canada are encouraged to send clergy, development, communication and stewardship personnel, diocesan and parish administration and pastoral staff and lay leaders to the June 2019 Conference in Saskatoon.

There will be something of interest for everyone. This will be a conference to connect pastors, lay leaders and diocesan and parish staff.

The goal: to help participants encounter Jesus Christ and inspire them to carry on his mission of making disciples. This is a weekend of encounter and transformation for all members of the church: Bishops and Pastors, PLD’s, parish leadership and laity.

The schedule: The Conference kicks off June 6 with a pre-conference day devoted to Annual Appeals as well as a track exclusively designed for Clergy.  The Cathedral of the Holy Family at 123 Nelson Road (corner of Attridge Drive and Forestry Farm Park Drive) will host the opening Mass as well as a “Saskatchewan tasting” reception and Cathedral tours before the conference moves to the Sheraton Cavalier in downtown Saskatoon. Friday and Saturday will include inspiring talks from a growing list of dynamic speakers covering all facets of Stewardship from fund development to communications to the every-day stewardship that should be our very way of life.
