2021 ICSC Virtual Conference
November 3 – 5
December 1 – 2, 2021
The conference image is the colorful, inspirational painting, The Dream of Elijah, by Philippe de Champaigne (c1655). This painting depicts the great prophet Elijah, fleeing from the death warrant of Queen Jezebel, falling down in exhaustion and grief and asking the Lord to let him die. He is rescued by the Lord’s angel, who gives him sustenance, renewed stamina, courage and hope to continue his flight, and ultimately his prophetic destiny.
About the 2021 ICSC Stewardship Conference
The ICSC virtual conference offers attendees a chance to gather and reflect on stewardship in the Catholic Church and also prepare for its transformational future in our current COVID-19 environment. The theme for ICSC’s virtual conference continues to be Restore Our Joy which recalls the psalmist’s plea to the Lord to transform his heart from sorrow to joy and renew in him a spirit of steadfastness and determination (Psalm 51:14).
The virtual conference is being offered in three modules:
- Module I, offered November 3 – 4, is designed for diocesan and archdiocesan professionals, Catholic foundation staff and Catholic school leaders.
- Module II, offered November 5, brings a full day of stewardship-related sessions designed for Spanish-speaking conference attendees.
- Module III, offered December 1 – 2, is designed for pastors, parish pastoral teams, parish stewardship and evangelization leaders and those interested in learning more about Christian stewardship as a way of life.
The virtual conference will offer a great venue for gathering of Catholic stewardship leaders and fund development professionals from across the United States, the conference provides Catholics in dioceses and parishes the tools, strategies and inspiration they need to offer courage, hope and a renewed spirit.
We invite you to join us in 2021 to Restore Our Joy!
