The Seeds of Hope Youth Leadership Conference scheduled for July 2021 has been postponed. Rather than hold an abbreviated version of the conference online, we will be returning to the original format that places participants in a retreat setting and allows for personal interaction and accompaniment, sacramental experiences and time to reflect in the peace and quiet of nature.

With the challenges of the past year, we believe it is more important than ever to provide young women with an immersive, in-person experience where they can make personal connections with their peers and successful professional women who can offer them guidance and support.

If you have any further questions, please contact Caroline at or 724-650-7936.
