August 17, 2017

McElroy_Bishop Robert - web 100x125Join hundreds of catechists, liturgists, and lay ministers from parishes and Catholic schools for the annual Faith Formation Conference – two days of education, collaboration, worship and inspiration. The conference takes place Nov. 3 and 4 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, 5001 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara. The conference has become an annual oasis for religious education leaders, teachers and seekers during its decades-long existence. San Diego Bishop Robert W. McElroy, who will address the conference on Saturday, is among the featured speakers over the two days.

The conference includes school sessions where you can hear the latest information on faith formation for children. All teachers, principals and pastors are welcome.

Newly added are leadership sessions delving into best practices and accountability in the management, finances, communications and human resources development of the Catholic Church.

In addition to English, the day welcomes multiple speakers in Spanish, Vietnamese and other languages.

Part of the event includes showcasing of materials and opportunities from ministries of the respective dioceses participating in the Faith Formation Conference. Tables in that display are available for $50. “It will be placed in the center of the exhibit hall – so there will be lots of exposure,” said Social Service Sister Celeste Arbuckle, director of religious education for the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
