12th Annual Summer Conference

Napa, California

July 27-31, 2022

Join us for the 12th Annual Summer Conference!

July 27 – 31, 2022


We invite you to join us as we dive deeper into our Catholic Faith and examine, with a spirit of charity, intellectual rigor, and fidelity to the magisterium, pressing issues facing Catholics today.


Napa Institute events are built on the three pillars of Community, Formation, and Liturgy. At the summer conference, we encourage attendees to build connections through meals with open seating and evening activities.

Each day there are keynote sessions from renowned speakers that develop the theme of that day, as well as breakout sessions that examine current topics. At the heart of the conference is the Eucharist: we offer several options for daily Mass as well as an Adoration chapel. Priests are also available to offer spiritual direction and confession.

We are excited to come together in person once again to share our faith and great conversations in fellowship and community!


This year’s conference theme is “The Way, The Truth, and The Life.”


For questions or assistance registering, please contact Jean Jacoby at jjacoby@napa-institute.org or 855-740-NAPA (6272).
