Equipping Catholics in the “Next America”

To equip Catholic leaders to defend and advance the Catholic Faith in the NEXT AMERICA – today’s emerging secular society.

The Napa Institute seeks to examine with a spirit of charity, fidelity to the Magisterium, and intellectual rigor the most critical issues facing Catholic leaders in the Next America – today’s emerging secular society.

We consecrate our Mission to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas.

At the cornerstone of the Napa Institute is its annual conference. Held in the majestic Napa Valley, the conference showcases Cardinals, Bishops, renowned priests and religious, and Catholic intellectuals who present thoughtful lessons on timely topics with the approval and support of His Excellency, The Most Reverend Robert F. Vasa, Bishop of Santa Rosa.
