Two Encounters coming soon

Posted on February 21, 2017 in: Articles

Two Catholic Vision for Leading Like Jesus Encounters will be offered later this month in central Iowa.

The Archdiocese of Dubuque will offer three Catholic Encounter programs at the Prairiewoods Spirituality Center in Hiawatha, IA, just north of Cedar Rapids, where participants have three choices of dates and times:

  • Thursday, Feb. 23, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb. 25, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

“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,” says Dan Rohner, Facilitator for the programs in Iowa, which are open to anyone.

“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.”

That will be the focus on the Encounters, Rohner added.

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.
