SEEK In Your Parish

“…Today a renewed awareness of the missionary identity requires a greater capacity for sharing, communication and encounter, so as to journey together on the path of Christ…”
(Directory for Catechesis 289)

SEEK21 is a one-of-a-kind live-broadcast event where thousands gather as small groups to ask the big questions about joy, peace, hope, and salvation. And this year we’re bringing SEEK to where you are for an event unlike any you’ve experienced before – no travel or time off required!

From February 4 – 7, 2021, gather your parish together for a four-day immersive event encountering the heart of the Gospel. There has never before been a Catholic conference of this magnitude focused on the Gospel message itself. Set aside the distractions and enter a space alongside fellow parishioners who are seeking a new encounter with the Lord, a new chance to pursue holiness, a new moment for our Church. Come away knowing Jesus Christ and have the confidence and tools to share and live the Gospel in your day-to-day life.

Be Equipped

Want to host SEEK21 at your parish? It’s easy to be a host! We will train your small group leaders, taking them step by step through the SEEK21 guidebook to make your local SEEK21 experience exceptional. In addition, we will provide you with all the details and resources your parish needs to bring SEEK to life and to aid you in recruiting attendees.

Be Inspired

Get ready to hear from the best of the best. Our A-list lineup could be coming to you, literally! Speakers may fly to where you are, presenting from a different city each day. Spread out across every corner of the country, from parish centers, to living rooms, backyards or Catholic centers — you don’t know where they will be next. They are ready to go the distance to bring the heart of the Gospel to life, no matter where you are.

Be Accompanied

SEEK21 will provide a unique opportunity for your parishioners to encounter the heart of the Gospel and be accompanied along their faith journey. However, SEEK21 is not just a four-day conference. Your parishioners will have the opportunity to receive post conference accompaniment that will further strengthen their confidence and provide additional tools to live out and share the Gospel in their everyday lives.

How Will You SEEK?

How will you gather?

Gather your parish together in small groups! The SEEK21 Parish registration option gives you the flexibility to pray, share meals, participate in the sacraments, partake in discussions and enjoy holy leisure together. You get to decide if everyone gathers together at the parish, parishioners host in their homes, or a mixture of both!

How will you invite your parishioners to encounter Jesus Christ?

Encountering Jesus Christ through prayer and the sacraments is the heart of SEEK21. A flexible schedule allows you to offer Mass, adoration, confession and intercessory prayer times to your small groups or participate in your parish’s regular sacramental schedule. Even if you gather small groups in living rooms, times of prayer can be the perfect moment to come together and be united as a group.

We especially encourage you to spend time in Adoration together (as restrictions allow) on Saturday February 6 during the international prayer vigil, begging our Lord for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our Church and in our world.

How will you use SEEK to launch into Lent?

Built on small group accompaniment, SEEK21 isn’t just a four-day event. It is a launching point for small group Bible studies to journey together through the coming Lenten season. Small groups can be the building blocks for welcoming parishioners back to the Church and sending them out to invite their friends and family to come home.

SEEK21 is best experienced in the small group setting where great discussion and camaraderie can be built. However, you may experience SEEK21 from the comfort and safety of your own home, if that is what you desire.

Your technology needs all depend on how you plan to experience SEEK. You may need special technology like a projector and speakers if you plan to gather a large group at your parish. If you encourage small groups in living rooms, you can stream on your TV or computer.

Once you have finalized the number of small groups that you’ll be hosting, FOCUS will send you sets of materials for each small group. Each small group set will include materials for the small group leader, and will include items for ten small group participants.

If you purchased a parish pack at SLS20, we would love for you to be a host site and still gather a group to experience SEEK21 together. Those who already purchased a parish pack at SLS20 will receive a 10% discount off their purchase of a SEEK21 parish pack, or off a single small group. We hope you will join us for SEEK21, but if this simply can’t be the case, we’ll refund your payment, no question asked.

If you already reserved your spot for SEEK21, your previous deposit will automatically be put towards a conference pass. If you are no longer able to attend, you may receive a refund (no questions asked). You are also invited to consider donating your deposit to support the mission of FOCUS. Look out for an email with instructions in the coming weeks.
