Helping parishes build vibrant, engaged communities is the goal of the 2011 Archdiocesan Stewardship Conference Saturday, Feb. 26.
It’s part of the theme, too, for the annual event – delayed from this past October – which will be held at Pax Christi Parish, 12100 Pioneer Trail in Eden Prairie. Doors open at 8 a.m., with the program beginning at 9 a.m. and running to 2 p.m.
Lunch is included in the $15 registration. (See how to register below.)
The conference is open to pastors, priests, religious, parish staff and leadership and individuals who desire to learn more about stewardship as a way of life; discover practices that will work well in their own parish; develop relationships with and find resources from conference sponsors; and network with other area Catholics who are engaged in stewardship.
