Over 300 attendees are expected to participate in the 2021 Congress November 4-7. Participants from every region of the U.S. – and even some international attendees – will descend upon Chicago or join us virtually for several days of connection and networking, dialogue and learning, prayer and Eucharist.

We're pleased to offer this year‘s Congress onsite in Chicago November 4-7 and virtually for those unable to join us in-person. See registration page for in-person and digital packages.

The face-to-face, in-person option enables peer-to-peer networking, exchange of  ideas and best practices, communal worship and prayer, Q & A with presenters, table discussions, and relationship-building.

Together, we’ll embody the now of religious life and give expression to our future as Catholic Sisters and Brothers!

Congress is a biennial national gathering that offers presentations and seminars that engage, educate, and strengthen formators in their ministry of formation. Topics touch on both initial and lifelong (ongoing) formation. Congress is ideal for formation and leadership personnel as well as partners and collaborators in religious formation.
