Artificial Intelligence in Ministry

Time: to


The Marianist Retreat and Conference Center is thrilled to offer a professional development opportunity on the use of Artificial Intelligence for anyone involved in ministry. We especially welcome school and church staff members, teachers, youth ministers, core team members, retreat leaders, DREs, CREs, and anyone else who is curious about a pastorally sound and intelligent approach to artificial intelligence.

This event will take place on Thursday, April 18, 2024 from 9:00 am – 2:30 pm at the Marianist Retreat and Conference Center, 4000 HWY 109 in Wildwood, MO. The cost is $65 per person, and your registration fee will include all-day coffee service, a delicious lunch, collaboration with others involved in ministry, and an amazing day of learning!

We will explore the intersection of AI, chatbots, and our shared mission to proclaim the Gospel, tailored to resonate with the mission and essence of Catholic ministry. Learn how these modern tools can be infused with the Catholic spirit to enhance outreach, craft engaging activities, and deepen Bible studies, all while fostering a sense of renewed spirituality and community.
