The Napa Institute and the St. Paul Center are partnering to host the 2021 West Coast Priest Conference. Dive deeper into scripture with Dr. Scott Hahn immersing yourself in the Word of God. Join Drs. Scott Hahn, John Bergsma and Tim Gray for three days of engaging talks, fellowship with your brother priests, and spiritual renewal.


Spending time in prayer and the sacraments is the primary focus of our conferences, because all other graces proceed from this. In addition to daily Mass, you will have ample time for personal prayer and reflection, including the opportunity for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The sacrament of Confession is offered daily, as well.


Our conferences also provide ongoing formation in the faith to aid in your priestly ministry. You will have the benefit of hearing from some of today’s leading theologians, who give stimulating talks on their latest scholarship.


Finally, this conference will offer time for growing in priestly brotherhood through shared meals and recreation. Priests who attend our conferences often cite this brotherly fellowship as one of the most blessed parts of the retreat. Grow in solidarity and friendship, and form lasting friendships.


Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa features ten acres of lush gardens, quiet courtyards, adobe fireplaces, and winding pathways.


Don’t miss out—join us for this year’s West Coast Priest Conference!
