Lift Up Your Hearts: 2021 January Priest Conference

January 4–7, 2021

Lakeway Resort

Austin, Texas

Co-sponsored by the Napa Institute.

Join Scott Hahn, John Bergsma, Ralph Martin, and Lawrence Feingold for a refreshing four days of spiritual renewal.

Spiritual Refreshment, Theological and Scriptural Formation, and Authentic Fellowship

Join Drs. Scott Hahn, John Bergsma, Ralph Martin, and Lawrence Feingold for three days of engaging talks, fellowship with your brother priests, and spiritual renewal.

Spending time in prayer and the sacraments is the primary focus of our conferences, because all other graces proceed from this. In addition to daily Mass, you will have ample time for personal prayer and reflection, including the opportunity for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The sacrament of Confession is offered daily, as well.

Our conferences also provide ongoing formation in the faith to aid in your priestly ministry. You will have the benefit of hearing from some of today’s leading theologians, who give stimulating talks on their latest scholarship.

Finally, this conference will offer time for growing in priestly brotherhood through shared meals and recreation. Priests who attend our conferences often cite this brotherly fellowship as one of the most blessed parts of the retreat. Grow in solidarity and friendship, and form lasting friendships.

Overlooking Lake Travis, Lakeway Resort features beautiful accommodations amidst the natural landscape of Texas Hill Country's pristine setting.

Don’t miss out—join us for this year’s Priest Conference West!

We will be closely following the guidelines for the state of Texas. All events will be adequately social distanced and masks will be required.
