This Year's Theme

What It Means to Be Human

Join us as we dive deeper into our Catholic Faith and examine, with a spirit of charity, intellectual rigor, and fidelity to the magisterium, the 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!

The year's pinnacle for Catholic leaders

Connect with hundreds of Catholic leaders influencing global culture and living the gospel in the public square.

$2,900 Registration

Registration costs for bishops are waived, and priests and religious receive a 50% discount from the standard fee.
