“We started Konza Conclave because we wanted to use technology and online platforms to help strengthen Catholics all across our state. Our hope is that the connections people make virtually translate into real friendships in the real world –and a real renewal of parish life.”

- Fr. Gale Hammerschidt
Chaplain, St. Isidore's Catholic Student Center

what is konza conclave?

Imagine if every committed Catholic in the state of Kansas* joined a “virtual community” with others who shared their Catholic Faith?

Imagine if every month, all the Catholics in the Sunflower State participated in a live group Zoom call with a faithful priest or a special guest; to learn how they could grow in faith, hope, and love; and make the most of their lives for the sake of Christ and His Church.

Imagine if the friendships and connections formed in this “virtual community” actually resulted in friendships and connections in “the real world.”

How would that energize Catholic community in our state? How would it revitalize parish life? How would it facilitate more organized and fervent efforts to serve the poor, feed the hungry, protect the unborn, or evangelize the culture?

Can you imagine?

You don't have to.
A virtual community like that now exists.
It's called Konza Conclave.

what our members are saying:

rhianna

As a Catholic studying at K-State, I love the idea behind Konza Conclave. It’s pretty easy to make connections and build friendships when you are a student — especially if your school has a great campus ministry like St. Isidore’s! But after you graduate, then what? Of course, the most important thing is to get involved in a parish. But Konza Conclave makes it possible —and easier! —to connect with more people locally and across Kansas who love Jesus and want to grow in their faith.

Rita

The Live Zoom Calls with Konza Catholic are the best! Not only are they entertaining, but they also offer an opportunity to be better informed about our Catholic Faith, and to connect with others who are on this same journey.

Jerry

Konza Conclave is a wonderful spiritual break from the hectic everyday grind - a necessary reset/reminder of what is actually important in life.

As a young person who lives in Kansas and a new convert to the Catholic Church, Konza Conclave was perfect for me. Not only was I able to grow in my faith and relationship with the Lord, I was able to connect with so many fellow, like-minded Catholics in my area. I highly recommend this to ANY Catholic in the state of Kansas.
