2019 Petrus Leadership Conference

June 2019: The Petrus Leadership Conference is a three-day conference presented by Petrus Development.  The Petrus leadership team, together with notable guest speakers, provide sustainable development training.  There is a universal need within Catholic ministries for sustainable financial development.  While the conference content focuses on development at Catholic Campus Ministries at universities in the U.S., parishes and private schools benefit greatly from the training.   It is also great for networking with ministry peers.  Attendees leave well-informed and recharged!

The typical schedule is a late afternoon arrival on the first day, check-in, mass, and dinner reception.  The next two days consist of numerous enrichment sessions and the attendees have some flexibility in their choices.  Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided as well as daily Mass.  There is a group dinner the last evening and the final day wraps up at noon.

The folks at Petrus know that budgets are limited and the choices of conferences can seem unlimited. There is time to prepare!  Make plans to join us now in June 2019!
