The Hour of the Laity: A Lay Catholic Conference (THL2023) is a national event for all lay Catholics who seek to grow as leaders to influence civil society for Christ. It provides 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 are lay people. THL2023 puts only lay Catholic leaders, who are making an impact, in front of attendees as examples of authentic lay Catholic leadership. Our speakers will show lay Catholics why and how our true calling is to be ambassadors of Christ in the world. Thursday, Nov. 2, 2023 to Sunday, Nov. 5, 2023, on Christ Cathedral Campus in Orange County, CA.
