RE: GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR AMAZING PARISH CONFERENCE
Bishop John Doerfler is once again offering grants from the Legacy of Faith Catholic Action Fund to support parish teams attending the Amazing Parish Conference. Over the years, 13 clergy and 40 lay leaders representing 20 parishes have attended this conference with the help of Legacy of Faith grants. The conference empowers parish teams to build a vision for evangelization for the parish.
A total of $10,000 will be available for the grant cycle 2019-2020. Parishes may receive grants to attend any Amazing Parish Conference in 2019 or 2020. Grant funds may be used toward transportation, lodging and the conference registration fee of $1,750 for a parish leadership team from 3 to 5 members.
Approved grants will be paid after July 2019, even if the conference takes place before this date.
Three grants of $3,000 are available for Parishes or Parish Clusters that have not previously attended the Amazing Parish Conference.
In addition, four smaller grants are available to Parishes or Parish Clusters that have previously attended the Amazing Parish Conference. In this case, the Parish or Parish Cluster is eligible for $250 per new, first time conference attendee.
Upcoming Amazing Parish Conference dates are:
May 13-15, 2019 at Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, OH. Click
