Annual Conference 2010

The second Annual Conference was held in November 2010 at Christ Church, New Haven, which was the location of the first Annual Conference. The schedule and speakers are below.

Reflecting on feedback from last year’s conference, we will be adding an extra day in order to allow for more social time and reflection as well as opportunities to see the city. The conference will begin with Evensong and Benediction on Wednesday the 10th.  Saturday the 13th will be a day of simple morning prayer followed by Mass. We look forward to seeing many of you in New Haven.  For those who were able to make it last year, please feel free to share your thoughts on the bulletin board about your time there.
