Mark your calendars now and
plan to attend:
The National Federation of Priests’ Councils
49th Annual Convocation
“Forging a Future with Pope Francis”
April 24 – 27, 2017
Majestic Garden Hotel
ALL PRIESTS WELCOME!
The convocation is open to the entire U.S. presbyterate, and includes time for prayer, presentations, discussion, fellowship and great food, plus time for relaxation and site-seeing. It is an invaluable time to connect with fellow priests from across the United States, be encouraged in your ministry, and to learn, pray, refresh and rejuvenate. You are worth it!
By becoming better priests, brothers with one another in Christ, we can better model for our people the Kingdom of God in our midst, in communion, brotherhood, and solidarity.
