Dear members and friends,
The joy and excitement that Pope Francis instills in us enlivens for us that Spirit that “renews the face of the earth”, revives our slumber, reignites our dreams and renovates our hopes. This is the mindset with which we approach final preparations for this year's Annual USCMA Conference entitled Gospel Justice: A Living Challenge for the Church in Mission
. Our conference webpage
and online registration page
are now functioning.
We are excited about the quality of speakers and presenters who will be there. On the conference webpage, you will find new material on a wide variety of workshops and dialogue sessions to choose from, as well as information about how to book your hotel room
in Alexandria, VA. Opportunities about exhibiting at the Conference and sponsoring various events
are also posted. As an ongoing introduction to this year’s theme, we will be adding reflection tools in the days and weeks to come to help you prepare and deepen your understanding of` how all of us are called to live Gospel Justice.
If you have not registered for this year's Mission Conference, now is the time to take advantage of the reduced rate for early registration. Make sure you register before September 20, 2014
to lock in the early bird rate
($325.00 for members and $375.00 for non-members). We also encourage you to spread the word to your mission partners and friends by inviting them to join you at the Conference. With such a vital topic as Gospel Justice, we even have a One-day Saturday Special registration for individuals and groups seeking to update their knowledge of and interest in justice-related issues and opportunities. Just click here for the Conference registration page. If you have any questions give us a call at 202-832-3112.
