All registrations and payments must be received by Friday, May 7, 2021. Registrations received later than this date will be assessed an additional $10.00 fee for late processing. Late registrations place an additional burden on the host Council and the hotel to ensure that there are sufficient seating and meals for all in attendance. Credit card payments must be made directly on the website.
Polo shirts commemorating the 2021 Convention can be pre-ordered. Refer to the Polo Shirt Order page in this packet. Please complete the entire form, making certain to indicate the size desired. Commemorative shirts may also be ordered at the convention, but at a higher price to cover shipping and production costs.
On Friday, all Bishops, Priests, Council Chaplains and Assembly Friars are invited to take part in the Opening Mass of the convention. Councils and Assemblies are urged to invite your Council Chaplains, Assembly Friars and Parish Priests to attend these events. Councils and Assemblies should reimburse / pay for any expenses incurred by travel, meals and lodging.
Immediately following Friday’s State Program Award Dinner there will be music under the stars in the Patio Garden area. The attire for both the dinner and dancing is “Tropical Casual” (Caribbean/Hawaiian style attire).
Saturday’s Ladies Luncheon will begin at 11:30 AM. The theme is ‘Living Our Faith Through Service and Charitable Deeds’. We are particularly excited about having two guest speakers, Marilee Baptiste for Midwest Food Banks and Joe Tanzsll for Paz de Cristo Community Center. She or He will show attendees the good that comes out of life though sometimes one has to work for it! During the Ladies Program there will be a 50/50 drawing as well as gift baskets to be raffled. Proceeds from the drawing and raffles will go to TBD. All in attendance will receive a raffle ticket to be used in a special gift basket only.
Advertising in the Convention Program is a great way to support convention activities, show support for our State Officers and show solidarity for our Chaplains, Friars, and Priests. We ask all Councils and Assemblies to place an advertisement in the program. Advertising must be submitted no later than April 23, 2021. Please use the “Buy Advertising” button on the right side of the web page.
