About the Conference

The Church has called us to open our doors to our communities. Now we must further the invitation and establish an intentional plan to welcome and form people of all ages to grow in their faith and love of God. We need a new vision of forming faith that welcomes people from all walks of life to gather at our tables and break bread. Together we will engage in lifelong learning, for diverse people of all ages and from all backgrounds – infancy to mature adulthood. Radical hospitality is more than hosting a backyard barbeque or holiday party. It is about opening your heart to someone even when you feel at your most vulnerable or unequipped. With some of the Church’s most creative, experienced and engaging educators we will share best formation practices, be inspired by great speakers, lift our voices in song and refresh our spirits as only time spent on the mountain of Kanuga can. Who do you seek to serve?
