Events to Help You Live this Catholic Way of Life

Coming Summer of 2021

Ambassador’s for Christ is designed to equip and inspire you to gently invite others to grow in their faith.  It will provide you with everything you need to know about next year’s Summit so that you can share this information with other parishioners.  It will also provide you with great information and training to help equip you to make a positive difference in your parish each and every day.

In an effort to make them more accessible to those living in more remote areas of the Diocese of Rapid City, these half-day events are held in different locations around the Diocese.  Pick the one that works for you!  

Note:  Due to the restrictions to large gatherings necessitated by COVID19, this event will not occur in 2020.  We look forward to bringing it to you in 2021.

SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 | Terra Sancta Retreat Center 

The Diocese of Rapid City’s Annual Summit is scheduled for Saturday, September 25, 2021 at Terra Sancta Retreat Center.  Our desire for the Summit is to provide inspiration and renewal to all Christians living in Western South Dakota.

As always, we promise to offer you time to relax, to enjoy fellowship, to pray and to experience the outstanding hospitality of Terra Sancta’s staff.  We look forward to sharing the day with you! 

Note:  After prayerful consideration, the Office of Stewardship has made the decision to postpone the 2020 Summit featuring Chris and Linda Padgett.  Over the past two years, the Summit has grown to be the largest event hosted by the Diocese of Rapid City.  We are committed to continuing to offer the people of the Diocese the kind of high-quality event you have come to expect and we feel we would be unable to do so because of the current and projected COVID19 restrictions.  We looked at current CDC guidelines and felt it was unrealistic to think we would be able to gather the kind of crowd the Summit typically draws this coming September.  We looked at some creative alternatives, but in the end, we sense the Lord asking us to put our energy and resources toward bringing you a wonderful day of relaxation, inspiration and fellowship in 2021. Once again the day will include a high-quality Youth Track so that you can bring the entire family.  We look forward to welcoming  you to Terra Sancta for this event in 2021.
