Register Now: Napa Institute Conference July 24-28

Registration is underway for the popular annual Napa Institute Summer Conference that, this year, will be held July 24-28, in Napa.  This year’s exceptional list of speakers include Cardinal Raymond Burke, Ethics and Public Policy Center’s George Weigel, Augustine Institute’s Dr. Tim Gray, and Focus on the Family’s Jim Daly, to name a few.

Catholic Business Journal has proudly covered this event since its inception, primarily because of its exceptional Catholic speakers and relevant topics, purposefully beautiful liturgies and sacred music, and the preponderance of Catholic business-related issues and attendees. 

“We’ve been privileged to watch the Napa Institute Conference in Napa blossom over the years from fledgling but on the mark, to consistently smoothly run, overly robust in its content and opportunities to network and learn, and peerless in its whole ‘package’ and in its elements of what I’ll call enriching whimsy,” says Karen Walker, exec publisher of Catholic Business Journal.

“While there are many excellent, life-enhancing Catholic conferences, including industry-specific conferences that are so enriching, such as the Catholic Medical Association event and various pro-life conferences, to name just a few,” Walker continues, “the Napa Institute in Napa is nonetheless superb in the Catholic fire-power it packs into just a few days!”

The conference excels in bringing together some of the world’s most prominent Catholic and Christian thinkers each year to engage, encourage, and inspire the more than 500 participants who gather for the annual conference from every corner of the country and around the world.

In addition to those speakers named above, this year’s conference will also include Bishop Thomas Paprocki, Bishop Thomas Daly, Bishop Joseph Strickland, founder of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) Alan Sears, president of the Magis Center Fr. Robert Spitzer, and so many more.

Vendor booths and opportunities flow over into several rooms, providing a wealth of knowledge and easy access to organizations, entities and truly inspiring good works around the world.

“The Napa Institute was formed to help Catholic leaders face the challenges posed in modern day society and we’re thrilled to have another incredible lineup of speakers for this year’s conference — and these speakers couldn’t be more timely,” said John Meyer, Executive Director of the Napa Institute.

Meyer continues: “There are so many attacks being waged against Catholics and Christians in our world today, and it’s more critical than ever for the faithful to be formed and engaged in their faith and beliefs. This year’s conference will seek to engage and inspire the faithful, and encourage them in their faith and in their lives — and one of the best ways to do this is through the speakers and program of the conference. We couldn’t be more excited with the lineup of speakers and everything else we have planned for this year’s conference. We hope that you’ll join us for this incredible event.”
