Adult Registration Package
$250.00 - US Currency
Child Registration Package (Age 6 - 17)
$125.00 - US Currency
Child (Age 5 years and younger) Day care - cost will be covered by Diocese for children whose registration is part of the first 100 registrants.
Childcare will be available for families attending the Congress. Care will be provided at the Convention Center by a bonded, certified childcare provider. All Care providers will have required background checks. Parents have the option of having their children remain without throughout the conference, but are asked to respect speakers during workshops.
The Diocese has arranged a block of rooms at the Crowne Plaza West Philadelphia at an excellent per night rate for the first three evenings; the anticipated number of people coming to see Pope Francis means the rooms are guaranteed for the final three evenings, but the rates for those dates have not been finalized - they could be as much as double the cost per night. If you register now and determine the final costs to be prohibitive of your attending, a full refund will be issued as long as you inform us prior to March 4, 2015.
|September 22 - 27, 2015||(CANADIAN) $1636.80 per room per night|
* Please note that for families that require more than one room due to family size, an additional bursary may be available. The Family Ministry Office will contact you.
The Diocese will fund two buses to transport Diocesan members at no charge. Once these spots are taken, registrants will have to find their own transportation to the event.
*For the individual registration, you must be 18 years of age or older at time of departure which is September 22, 2015.
