Growing in Leadership 

“It was a fantastic three days. Extremely helpful!” – 2019 participant

This annual workshop is designed for major superiors and councilors in office two years or less. Leadership teams are encouraged to attend together. Learn from and collaborate with experts who can help you and your leadership team excel. Among the topics:

  • Top 10 for new leaders
  • Canon and civil law
  • Finances
  • Navigating personnel concerns
  • Leadership for vocations and formation
  • Self-care and leadership
  • Working with dioceses
  • Safeguarding responsibilities
  • Resources from CMSM and others

Connect with others new to leadership, as well as veteran leaders and experts. The workshop will include a mix of presentations, panel discussions, a “lunch & law” conversation with civil and canon lawyers (bring your questions), and conversation and fellowship. We will gather for daily prayer and Mass.
