To make your visit more enjoyable, here are some suggestions:

  • Download, complete, and return the registration form, even if you haven’t made transportation plans. You can inform us about this later.

  • If you plan to stay at the Quality Inn, make your reservation with us, not the motel.

  • For the first time, we can accept all credit cards except American Express.

  • Plan to tour the new Seminary Ridge Museum.  It has won an international award from the British Travel Writers Association (as one of the three best new museums in the world for 2013) and a national award from the American Builders Association (for creative historic renovation). 

Costs have risen sharply since the last conference, but we have reduced the registration fee, obtained discounts for housing and the tour, and subsidized the cost of the meals—which in addition we have upgraded.  Transportation from Baltimore and Washington, as always, is free.

This is largely possible because of two major gifts from The Community of Christ in the City in memory of Fr. Richard John Neuhaus, and Kiyomi Koizumi Watanabe in memory of her husband and our beloved friend, Morimichi Watanabe.

Please don’t hesitate to call on us at any time.  We’ll be happy to help in any way we can.
