CV NEWS FEED // Tepeyac Leadership Inc. will host a conference to form lay Catholics for leadership in civil society in November.
Intended for all lay Catholics, The Hour of the Laity: A Lay Catholic Conference is a national conference that “will initiate attendees in a discernment towards the discovery of the unique leadership role God has prepared for them in civil society.”
Attendees will “learn how to become influential leaders in their own professional fields, communities, and spheres of influence,” and also get connected with resources and a larger network of lay Catholic leaders.
The Hour of the Laity is unique in that all the experts, panelists, and speakers are laypeople who exemplify Catholic leadership in civil society – rather than apologists, theologians, or ministry leaders. Their presentations will engage with the questions of why and how lay Catholics have a true calling as ambassadors of Christ in the world.
Tepeyac Leadership Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to civic leadership development for lay Catholic professionals.
“With a spirit of charity, fidelity to the Magisterium and intellectual rigor, Tepeyac Leadership Initiative is a catalyst development experience which equips lay Catholic professionals to become virtuous leaders, while supporting the mission of the Church, influencing the culture and serving the common good,” according to the organization’s vision statement.
Speakers at the upcoming conference will include Tim Busch, Deacon Charlie Echeverry, Monica Hannan, Candelario de Leon, Nikolas Nikas, and Simone Rizkallah.
The three-day conference will be held at Christ Cathedral in Orange County, CA. Readers interested in attending can register for the conference here.
