Mid-Atlantic Congress announces scholarships

Co-chairs Paul Henderson, board member of the Association of Catholic Publishers, and Father John Hurley, executive director of the Department of Evangelization, announced that 50 scholarships donated by the National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management are available to cover the cost of the registration fee for qualified participants at the 2012 Mid-Atlantic Congress for Pastoral Leadership (MAC).

The MAC will be held March 8-10, 2012 at the Hilton Hotel in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. It is co-sponsored by the Association of Catholic Publishers and the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Department of Evangelization.

“This partnership with Leadership Roundtable takes us one step closer to engaging a broad cross section of parish leaders at MAC and, hopefully, beyond,” Henderson said.

The scholarships are intended to support those who are in financial need due to economic hardship; have experience at a leadership level at a parish or diocese, are committed to continuing to minister at that level and represent diverse cultural backgrounds.

Applications, to be submitted by Jan. 6, 2012, are available online at Midatlanticcongress.org/registration/Scholarships.php.
