Tepeyac Leadership, Inc. (TLI) announces The Hour of the Laity: A Lay Catholic Conference (THL2023), a new platform to develop lay Catholics for engaging society as civic leaders. This national conference is programed for November 2 – 5, 2023 at Christ Cathedral in the Diocese of Orange. Prospective attendees can learn about THL2023's vision by watching the 13-minute documentary film, The Hour of the Laity, on YouTube.

As part of Tepeyac Leadership’s mission to deliver civic leadership development to lay Catholics in the U.S. and beyond, the upcoming conference will equip lay people to take on leadership roles in the secular world (i.e., board service, philanthropy, public service, etc.). The conference will become an annual platform to train the next generation of lay Catholic leaders for the world. THL2023 provides lay Catholic leadership formation, but not for ministry, for the world!

What is unique about The Hour of the Laity?

All the experts, panelists, and keynotes introduced in the conference are lay people. THL2023 puts only lay Catholic leaders, who are making an impact today, in front of attendees as examples of authentic lay Catholic leadership. The national conference will show lay Catholics why and how their true calling is to be ambassadors of Christ in the world.

Why should lay Catholics attend?

  • THL2023 provides an opportunity to learn about the different areas of human activity which are primed for lay Catholic leadership in civil society.
  • THL2023 starts attendees in a discernment for the discovery of the unique leadership role God has prepared for them in civil society.
  • THL2023 shows attendees how to become influential leaders in their own professional fields, communities, and spheres of influence (i.e., board service, philanthropy, public service, or civic engagement).
  • THL2023 connects attendees with resources and an extensive network of lay Catholic leaders ready to support them while influencing society with the values of the Gospel.

The weekend event is a new platform to form lay Catholics for engaging society as civic leaders. Like TLI’s flagship program, Tepeyac Leadership Initiative, THL2023 operates at the intersection of professional development and spiritual growth.

As part of Tepeyac Leadership’s mission to deliver civic leadership development to lay Catholics in the U.S. and beyond, THL2023 equips lay people to take on leadership roles in secular society. The conference will be an annual platform to train the next generation of lay Catholic leaders for America and the world.

Tepeyac Leadership believes lay Catholics have a unique responsibility and privileged opportunity to influence the world for Christ. It’s their duty as baptized children of God. THL2023 provides the training and resources necessary to carry out this vision of lay Catholic leadership for civil society.

The early bird registration is open until May 1, 2023.
