Many of us have heard the criticism that the Church is “too rich”. As the world’s oldest and largest non-profit entity, the Church certainly has a wealth of assets at its disposal. But the truth of those assets — what they are and how they contribute to building the Body of Christ — is much more nuanced than many know.
Among the many assets entrusted to the Church, real estate is possibly the most visible and the most affected by changing demographics, economics, and market trends.
Join us April 28-30 in Rome as we host experts in the field who are working on the ground to reimagine and revitalize Church properties in a way that better serves our apostolic and evangelical needs, while providing much-needed revenue for the Church — and to use those savings (and earnings!) in support of their critical ministries.
Co-hosted by Global Institute of Church Management and the Fitzgerald Institute for Real Estate at the University of Notre Dame, the 2022 Real Estate and the New Evangelization Conference hosts experts in finance, real estate, theology, and more.
General admission to onsite attendance in Rome is US $99 and includes breaks and the closing reception. Lunch is on your own. The rate for students, clerics, religious and media is US $25. Virtual attendance via Zoom link is free.
By registering you consent to the sharing of your email and name with GICM, FIRE Institute and the University of Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway for contacting purposes relating to the conference. We will not sell or share your information with outside organizations.
The 2022 Real Estate and the New Evangelization Conference is being hosted at the University of Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway, University of Notre Dame du Lac, Via Ostilia 15, 00184, Rome.
There are many options for accommodations in Rome. It is recommended that you use a hotel aggregator site (like hotels.com, or sites for vacation rentals like AirBnb and Bookings) and look for the quality of lodging and location that suits your interest. To be close to the University, select the Colosseum as your landmark for searching. If you stay in the center of Rome, you will be a short cab ride away. It’s walkable if you enjoy walking. The Colosseo metro stop is close by, as are other forms of public transportation.
Information current as of March 5, 2022 – Italy is open to non EU citizens with a negative covid test. We anticipate that any additional restrictions will be lifted by April 1, perhaps even sooner. Remember: most airlines and hotels continue to offer refundable and/or no-change-fee reservations! We encourage you to plan optimistically, especially if you can cancel without penalty. Trip insurance is also advisable.
For transport to and from the airport, we are using Aldo Marrani. You can contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your details. He and his team speak English and offer very professional services. He charges €55 to/from the airport, payable in cash, by credit card, or PayPal.
