Leadership Gathering 2019

 

Responding to the Call: The Gift of Community

Leaders – and emerging leaders – of men’s religious communities (members of CMSM and CRC) are invited to participate in a retreat-style conference that includes input and reflection time on living a joyful, healthy and resilient life as a member of a religious community. A detailed conference schedule will be provided by Southdown in September 2018.

The Leadership Gathering 2019 is co-hosted by Southdown and CMSM, and held at the peaceful Redemptorist Renewal Center next to the Saguaro National Park West in Tucson, Arizona.
