13th Annual Summer Conference

Napa, California

July 26 - 30, 2023

Join us for the 13th Annual Summer Conference!

July 26 – 30, 2023


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:

What We Need Now:

Renewing God’s Presence in our Lives, in our Church, and in our Culture


The 2023 conference will focus on recovering the presence of Jesus Christ – and his words, “my peace I give unto you” (John 14:27) – at the heart of our daily lives: i.e., in our personal discipleship; in the life of the Church; and in the affairs of our wider culture.

In other words, the central goal of the summer conference is the renewal and reinforcement of hope.
