Congress Registration Open to RFC Members

Derby Bugler

April 3, 2019

Dear Sisters and Brothers, Members of the Religious Formation Conference,

It is with great excitement that we open registration to members for the 2019 RFC Congress! You are invited to join us this October 24-27 in Louisville, KY at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport Expo Center for this hope-filled experience of community, learning and dialogue, prayer and liturgy. 

Please visit the Congress website - - for presentation descriptions, presenters, Congress schedule, fees and more. 

The Congress program features a rich diversity of topics, experiences, presenter backgrounds, expertise and knowledge. Congress participants will have the opportunity to learn from and dialogue with esteemed thought-leaders and practitioners in their fields.

If you did not receive an email from the RFC with the member registration link please email us at and we'll send this on immediately. 

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!

Members are given the first opportunity to register and secure their spot at the 2019 Congress. Soon registration will open to everyone. We encourage members to register as soon as possible to ensure first choices of presentations. 

We look forward to greeting you in October. 

Ready. Set. Register!
