A Successful Summer Leadership Conference was held in Naperville, IL, July 15-17, 2013. Over 110 attendees from all over the country participated in this event, including many Bishops, Abbots, Provincials, Vicar for Clergy’s and Health Care Coordinators. Conference attendees participated in plenary sessions, breakout sessions, liturgies and sharing of concerns and ideas with one another. The information and resources gained during the Conference days helped to facilitate the very important leadership role those in attendance play in assisting Priest and Men Religious in need of behavioral health intervention, treatment, and support in their recovery from chronic addiction diseases.
Our Conference dates and location for next year are:
July 14-16, 2014
Chicago Marriott Naperville Hotel

Our Annual Conferences are intended for diocesan leaders, and for leadership in men’s religious communities, along with other individuals who advocate for the well-being of clergy and religious.
