The next Msgr. Thomas McGread Stewardship Conference will be held August 23-24, and registration is now open. There are a limited number of spaces available, so we are extending an invitation to followers of The Catholic Steward to attend this one-of-a-kind event.
Now in its 14th 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 parishes and impacted the lives of individual parishioners across the country.
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 will hear the remarkable story of how stewardship forever changed Msgr. McGread’s parish — St. Francis of Assisi in Wichita, Kan. — and how Monsignor’s vision has impacted other parishes across the country. The conference also will feature presentations by successful pastors and lay leaders from around the country. Our presenters will share stories of how stewardship has become a way of life in their parishes, and give you practical advice and ideas on how you can transform the life of your parish through stewardship.
The McGread Stewardship Conference is held at the Diocese of Wichita’s Spiritual Life Center in Wichita, Kansas.
