Religious Registration for the Vocation Fair at the 16th annual conference taking place on
March 1 & 2, 2018 is in progress. 

Please read the attached letter regarding important changes that may, or may not, affect your participation this year. Whether you have registered or not, please take a moment to read. 


Thank you to those already registered! If, after reading this, you need to prayerfully reconsider, please email me or call to discuss. Host Families will be notified of the changes soon.

If you would like to register to attend our reconfigured conference which is now a day and a half, please do so using the link below.  We will not have a Run for the Nuns.

Religious registration is open to priests, brothers, and sisters and their communities who would like to share the JOY of their vocation.  Due to the large number of participants, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Based upon previous years experience, we expect the Vocation Fair for Religious Communities to fill quickly. In order to accommodate as many communities and apostates as possible we reserve the right to suggest or reassign spots. Even if the Vocation Fair is full, you may still register and participate in all aspects of the 2 Day Conference.  We will attempt to find you display space if another community cancels. However we cannot guarantee a table display.
