The International Catholic Stewardship Conference has made a name for itself as the premier event for those who want to advance the ministry of stewardship in our nation, dioceses and local parishes. The ICSC Conference is an experience with beautiful liturgies, world-renowned speakers, exciting workshops and exhibits loaded with valuable how-to resources to take home. This year, the conference will take place Sept. 28-Oct. 9 as an online event.
“Encounter! Meeting Jesus on Higher Ground” will live stream and record videos presented in more than 100 sessions spread out over 10 days. The virtual conference will feature workshops, keynote presentations, opportunities for prayer and reflection, a virtual exhibit hall and special networking events made available through the Whova platform. Each day’s agenda includes sessions for everyone from neophytes to seasoned professionals, including sessions designed specifically for clergy, parish business managers, Catholic school personnel, and Spanish-speaking individuals.
You can access the conference on a computer or through the free Whova app for tablets and cell phones. View the full conference brochure at http://catholicstewardship.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ICSC-2020-Virtual-Conference-Information-RegistrationAug10.pdf.
