2019 Napa Conference

9th Annual Summer Conference

Napa, California

July 24-28, 2019

The Annual Summer Conference is a preeminent Catholic conference in the United States, bringing together Catholic leaders for faith, fellowship and community, as we explore the theme of This Catholic Moment.  We are excited to announce that our keynote speakers include His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke, George Weigel, Jim Daly, Alan Sears, Fr. Robert Spitzer, Patrick Lencioni, Dr. Tim Gray and more.  Please stay tuned for details!


Napa Institute events are built on the three pillars of Community, Formation, and Liturgy. At the annual 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. This year’s daily themes include Charting the Path Forward, Answering the Universal Call to Holiness, Facing Challenges in a Secular Culture, and Revitalizing the Parish in the 21st Century. At the heart of the conference is daily Mass, Adoration, spiritual direction, and time for prayer and reflection.
