Posted on January 24, 2017 in: Articles

The Archdiocese of Dubuque is hosting three Catholic Vision for Leading Like Jesus Encounters in February at the Prairiewoods Spirituality Center in Hiawatha, IA, just north of Cedar Rapids. The dates and times are:

  • Tuesdays, Feb. 21 and 28, 6-9 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 23, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb. 25, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

“Often our leadership efforts are not effective – we are ignored, undermined, even ridiculed and reviled,” says Dan Rohner, Facilitator for the programs. “Jesus showed us a better way -- because Jesus was the best leadership teacher and role model of all time.”

Rohner adds: “Modern empirical studies continue to affirm the value of Jesus’ leadership approach in every setting – at home, at work, in our parishes and in the network of other communities of which we are all a part. You can be a better leader -- helping to bring about better outcomes -- as spouse, parent, grandparent, friend, team member, team leader, worker, supervisor, manager, sales executive, CEO, scout leader, youth coach, club member or officer, as pastor and parishioner.”

The registration fee is just $49 by credit card or check. Register at For more information, contact Rohner at or 800-876-3546 x 283.
