Designed for the growth and development of parish leaders

Following the lead of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, the Kino Leadership Conference is designed to equip Parish Leaders to meet the demands of fostering the New Evangelization in our Diocese.

This conference will help new and experienced leaders focus on developing the right vision, the relationships, and principles for evangelization and catechesis. Designed by veteran leaders from the Diocese of Phoenix and throughout the country, this conference will help you focus on the essential areas that lead to fruitful, disciple-making outreach.
