Conference for Priests: Evangelizing Your Parish

The Thomistic Institute’s Eighth Annual Conference for Priests: “Evangelizing Your Parish” will be held 29 July to 1 August, 2019 in Providence, RI.

“As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near’.”

The work of evangelization is attractive, but it’s also difficult and perhaps even a bit intimidating. What is more, evangelization can be most challenging at home, within one’s own parish. This year, we’ve invited excellent speakers to enlighten and inspire us for the urgent work of witness.


Keynote lecture: Bishop Tomas Tobin


Fr. Peter John Cameron, OP (Province of St. Joseph) Fr. Anthony Giambrone, OP (Ecole Biblique), Fr. James Sullivan, OP (Province of St. Joseph), Fr. Damian Ference (Diocese of Cleveland), Fr. Jay Scott Newman (Diocese of Charleston), Fr. Augustine Wetta, OSB (Monk of St. Louis Abbey).


Cost of the conference is $225 for early registration (by March 28th). Regular registration is $250. Cost includes all conference materials, daily continental breakfast, light refreshments during the day, pre-prandials, and one catered dinner. Registration is complete upon receipt of payment.


The conference will take place at the Cathedral of Saints Peter & Paul (30 Fenner Street, Providence, RI). 

Discounted hotel rooms are available through the Hotel Providence or the Omni Providence (1-800-THE-OMNI; reference the Conference for Priests).

For those planning to fly, T. F. Green Airport (PVD) is approximately 15 minutes from downtown. There is also an Amtrak station convenient to the hotel and cathedral.
