The Atlanta Catechist Conference is an annual gathering of volunteer catechists, core teams, Parish Catechetical Leaders, Youth Ministers, RCIA teams and Catholic school teachers. The event supports the ongoing formation and enrichment of these volunteers and lay ministry leaders who serve the Church’s mission of evangelization and catechesis. The day features national and local speakers leading workshops on theology, spirituality, methodology, and more. Participants earn Catechist Certification Credit in the Archdiocese of Atlanta for all workshops attended.
The 2020 ACC with LifeTeen is virtual this year! Open to all and free registration.

What participants are saying…
"Renewal and refreshment by dedication and knowledge. Was a wonderful opportunity to grow, and grow, and grow on so many levels - spiritually, professionally and relationship. I felt energized to be with so many dedicated servants of the Lord.
“The venue was physically comfortable making easy access to the many activities. So many Catholics coming together, including Archbishop Gregory and Bishop Scheslinger, created a warm welcoming family environment.
"It was very enlightening. A reinforcement of the value & necessity of answering the call of service to God, to the church, to one another."
“As a new catechist, I have found the annual Atlanta Catechist Conference to be both a wonderful experience in the richness of our Catholic faith as well as a crucial component in my ongoing development as a catechist.”
The full day of instruction and discussion with competent instructors well versed in their topics offered a day of spiritual educational growth for Catechists who then can go out and spread this knowledge onto their students, their fellow Catholics, their communities.
