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.
