2024 Annual Conference

Called to be Saints

SEPTEMBER 15-18 | NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA The theme for this 62nd anniversary conference is Called to be Saints. The conference image is that of the Adoration of the Holy Trinity by Albrecht Dürer, ca. 1511. The painting gives us the opportunity to experience a dazzling vision of the kingdom of heaven from two perspectives. We see both heaven and earth which keeps us mindful that though we live on this earth, we are as Saint Paul describes in his first letter to the Corinthians (1 Cor. 1:2), counted among the saints in heaven through our Baptism and profession of faith in a Triune God.

Stewardship Saints - Saint Martha – One of Jesus’ Closest Friends

On July 29 we celebrate the feast of Saint Martha, one of Jesus’ closest friends and well known for her hospitality and industriousness. She was the sister of Lazarus, who was raised from the dead by Jesus, and Mary, with whom Jesus compared her. She is the patron saint of homemakers, hospital dieticians, domestic workers, waiters and waitresses, and others who work in the culinary and hospitality industries.

Stewardship of Leisure Time: Refreshing Our Spirits

The anticipated number of travelers on the highways and in airports for the first week of July is a hopeful sign that people are “catching their breath” and beginning to wind down and relax a little. Those in the mental health fields argue that because of the stress and anxiety in our daily lives we need to get away for extended periods of rest and relaxation, especially now in the summer months.
