Over 300 attendees are expected to participate in the 2019 Congress. Participants from every region of the U.S.—and even some international attendees—will descend upon Louisville for several days of connection and networking, dialogue and learning, prayer and Eucharist.

Given the challenges facing us today, we felt it was crucial for our Congress theme to emphasize the call to be people of life, light, love and hope amidst profound brokenness. The good news of Jesus beckons us forward to be both bold and faithful, hope-filled and courageous in our witness of His love.

We encourage those interested to register as soon as possible to secure a spot and ensure first choices of presentations. Ready. Set. Register!

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

The RFC 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.
