National Kolping Convention Postponed until September 2022
The Cincinnati Kolping Board, as well as the National Kolping President and Administrator, have approved postponing the National Kolping Convention until September of 2022. Based on the uncertainty of COVID- 19 restrictions being lifted by September of this year, the demographics of the participants in the event, the state of all of the U.S. Kolping societies with very little income coming in, and a slew of other factors, the Convention Committee decided that it would be in the best interest of all concerned to postpone until next year.

The National Convention will now take place the weekend of September 9-11, 2022 in Cincinnati. The safety and well-being of all of the Kolping members was our utmost concern in making this decision to postpone. Since the National Kolping Convention is normally scheduled every two years, this fits nicely into the rotation, since the last convention was in 2018. We will be sending out new information about the convention either late this year or at the beginning of next year, so stay tuned!


Nancy Pelzel,
National Kolping Convention Committee Chair
