Our annual conference brings leaders, professionals, academics, ethicists, pastoral and spiritual care providers, and theologians together to engage in robust dialogue about current topics, deepen their calling to continue the healing ministry of Jesus, and collaborate on initiatives to better serve those in need and transform the health system.

Our 2021 online conference theme is Rise Up and Reach Out: The Pandemic Calls Forth the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ which will explore the response to the pandemic within Catholic health care organizations—the way we have delivered care and cared for those who deliver it. How did we fare? What did we learn? What can we celebrate? It will take place virtually on May 6 and 7.

Date: May 6-7, 2021
