Watch parties are a great way to bridge the gap between virtual conference attendance and in-person fellowship.

Watch parties allow for virtual attendees to experience the fellowship of brother Catholics and the blessing of conference events, while respecting health and safety protocols. Hosts and guests can choose their level of comfort within applicable guidelines and respond to the needs of their own group.

Interested in hosting but Not sure where to start?

  1. Choose a space. Talk to your parish about using a dining room or fellowship hall; open your home; rent a theatre. 

  2. What is your safety plan? How many guests can be invited while following local guidelines? How can guests maintain social distancing?

  3. Plan for hospitality. Will you provide refreshments, cater, or go potluck style? 

  4. Invite guests. Be sure to communicate your plans for food and safety. Ensure each guest registers; there is still a cost to the conference.

  5. Prepare. Please follow any guidelines for cleaning per local authorities. Test your media setup in advance.

  6. Pray for your event, and your guests by name.

  7. Check in with your guests the days before hand to confirm their plans and check on health.

  8. Enjoy!

Registered conference attendees only please!
