147th Annual Diocesan Convention

The theme for this year’s Convention is “Fueled by Faith: Daring to Discover.”

Dates: Friday, Oct. 13 and Saturday, Oct. 14
Location: AACA Museum, Inc, Hershey, Pa

We have critical work ahead of us this year: Beginning at Convention and continuing throughout the year, we will focus on naming the common values and missional priorities of our diocese and the “vehicles” that will put those values and priorities into motion.

It is important for us to claim these common mission priorities to build a sense of diocesan unity, purpose and vitality.

Come to Convention to learn, to discover, to share your passion and to join together as One Body in Christ.

See you in Hershey!
