Have you noticed that we are using “Conference” rather than “Convention” when referring to our upcoming national gathering? We’ve heard from many Dignity members and friends that they thought “convention” implied a business meeting focused on internal issues, and was more appropriate for “insiders” and current leaders. We know our gatherings offer much more: inspirational, thought-provoking reflections on emerging issues, engaging workshops, moving liturgies and prayer experiences, a range of social events, high-quality entertainment, and opportunities to meet or reconnect with incredible people from all around the country… You told us “conference” seemed a better reflection of this variety of offerings, and felt more welcoming. So, we’re throwing a conference—a great conference—and there’s A Place at the Table for you! Registration will open in January 2017.
