Napa Institute seeks to fill a void by helping influential Catholic leaders realize they are not alone in caring about their faith. With open seating at meals, as well as our unique and exceptional social events, we allow time for fellowship and friendship in a way that is unrivaled among Catholic conferences.


By bringing in high quality speakers to address issues and themes that are relevant, serious, and worthy of attendees’ time and attention, Napa Institute encourages attendees to dive deeper in understanding current topics, our faith, and our relationship to God.


Recognizing that the Eucharist is the source and summit of Catholic life, it is a central focus of the conference. Mass is available multiple times a day in different forms to highlight the richness of our Catholic Faith Traditions. Confession, spiritual direction and a chapel for private prayer and Eucharistic adoration are also available daily.
