The next Msgr. Thomas McGread Stewardship Conference will be held Sept. 9-10, 2014, and registration is now open. There are a limited number of spaces available, so we are extending an invitation to our followers of The Catholic Steward blog to attend this one-of-a-kind event.
Now in its 11th year, the McGread Conference has inspired and educated thousands of priests, religious, and lay Catholics, by sharing the remarkable stories of how developing the spirituality of stewardship has transformed the lives of parishioners as well as the life of the parish.
The late Msgr. Thomas McGread, who passed away in April 2013, is often called the “Father of Stewardship.” He was instrumental in the drafting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ pastoral letter, Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response.
At this conference, you can hear the remarkable story of how stewardship transformed his parish — St. Francis of Assisi in Wichita — and how it has impacted other parishes across the country. The conference also will feature presentations by pastors and lay leaders from around the country that will share stories of how stewardship has become a way of life in their parish.
Conference spots will fill up quickly, so register today! You may register online at the link above, or if you have any questions or would like more information, contact Shari Navarre at 888-822-1847, ext. 3702, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
