Invest in the future of the Church by sponsoring the 2024 Catholic Partnership Summit!
Leadership Roundtable is excited to invite you to sponsor the 2024 Catholic Partnership Summit, which will be in-person from Feb. 28 - March 1, 2024.
Nearly 20 years ago, Leadership Roundtable formed as a ministry of hope to a Catholic Church in crisis, boldly envisioning that the Church could heal and strengthen from the challenges it has faced. Our 2024 Summit will celebrate the anniversary of that seminal gathering, and we invite you to join us in this event by being a sponsor.
Our theme for 2024 is Expanding the Tent: Young Adult Leadership and Co-Responsibility in the Catholic Church
For leaders of the Church, young adults are top of mind in nearly every sector — it is a matter of deep concern for bishops and pastors, as well religious brothers and sisters, and leaders of Catholic organizations. Of all the issues facing the Church, young adult leadership is one of the few that is galvanizing, that unites Catholics across divides. As we consider the future of the Church, there is concern for the pipeline of leadership, for formation of emerging lay leaders to serve in critical roles. There is concern for recruitment and retention, specifically of young adults to leadership positions, and for developing a culture that has a diversity of thought, representation, and action.
Young adults are not an addendum to the leadership of the Church — they must be afforded a central role.

Building a Church for the Future:
Mission, Stewardship, and Restoring Trust in a Post-Pandemic World
During the immersive virtual Catholic Partnership Summit, more than 270 Catholic leaders from across the world assessed the current landscape of the Church in the U.S. and created actionable solutions that emphasize exemplary stewardship of Church finances and assets, the better care of people, rebuilding trust, and harnessing potential — all in service to the Church’s mission.
From Crisis to Co-Responsibility:
Creating a New Culture of Leadership
Leadership Roundtable convened its 2020 Catholic Partnership Summit on the topic “From Crisis to Co-Responsibility: Creating a New Culture of Leadership.” Pope Francis has called for greater lay involvement and synodality, and Leadership Roundtable sought to bring together clergy and lay leaders to address how co-responsibility can help the Church respond to its multiple crises.

Our annual Summit recognizes those who are making a significant impact in our Church through philanthropy by honoring several renowned Catholic philanthropists with the presentation of the J. Donald Monan S.J. Distinguished Catholic Philanthropy Medal.
Fr.

With the annual presentation of the medal to several philanthropic families, we honor those who personify his legacy.
