Nashville: Home of Country Music
If music is your thing, you’re in the right place. After registering for the convention on Wednesday, June 27, get your ticket for the Grand Ole Opry concert hall, now home to the show that made country music famous! The next day, consider a tour of the Music City Hall of Fame before opening Mass at the Cathedral of the Incarnation at 5 p.m. Enjoy entertainment at the reception after Mass, but get yourself to the Ryman Auditorium for authentic bluegrass starting at 7:30 p.m. Of course, there’ll be plenty more cultural and culinary adventures for you to enjoy! We look forward to revealing these soon.
We are proud to announce that His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto, and Most Reverend Peter Sartain, Archbishop of Seattle, are at the top of our confirmed speakers list. Stay tuned to Serra International publications for a list of our excellent speakers who will challenge and nurture your faith and orientation toward our unique vocations mission.
Stay Later for an All-American Holiday
The convention ends just days before July 4, Independence Day. Consider extending your stay to take advantage of the fireworks and festivities in this iconic American city!
