2021 Annual Conference
Catholic Lawyers: Navigating Turbulent Waters
OCTOBER 21-23, 2021
The 2021 General Assembly and Annual Conference at the Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Florida was a great success! There were over 100 attendees and the lineup of speakers was first-rate! A link to the informative Meeting Brochure is found HERE.
A rosary was recited before each day's meeting and Mass was celebrated by Father Ken Riley before the first day's meeting. The opportunity for Eucharistic Adoration was provided in the school's chapel at the meeting site.
The social events at the meeting were great opportunities for fellowship and networking.
The Red Mass was celebrated by the Most Reverend Frank J. Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice, Florida. Coverage of the Red Mass by the diocesan newspaper is found HERE.
The Red Mass Banquet was held at the Kensington Golf & Country Club with The Most Reverend Felipe J. Estévez, Bishop of the Diocese of St. Augustine, presenting the St. John Fisher Lecture on the subject, "Cuba- Is There a Future of Hope?"
SAVE THE DATE! Next year's General Assembly and Annual Conference will be held October 14-15, 2022 in Dallas, Texas.
We hope to see you there!
