What is Ministry Days?

Ministry Days is the largest gathering of ministers, catechists and Catholic school teachers in the Diocese of Sacramento. The event is an excellent opportunity to network with others who serve our parishes and schools.

This year's theme is “Merciful like the Father” (Lk 6:36) which is also the theme for the Jubilee Year of Mercy.  We look forward to you joining us for Ministry Days 2016!


All participants must be registered. Minimum age to attend the event is 18.  We recommend that you register as soon as possible.  You do not have to pre-select your workshop choices when you register.  Please note this is a change from previous years.
