2019 State Convention May 3-4 in Rochester, MN

The Minnesota CDA convention will be held on Friday, May 3rd and Saturday, May 4th at the Kahler Grand Hotel located in downtown Rochester, Minnesota. 

Masses will be held at Saint John Catholic Church which has been elevated to the co-cathedral. 

Parking at St. John's Co-Cathedral is extremely limited. On Friday do not count on any nearby parking as the school has an event using the parking lot. There will be a bus from the Kahler Grand to the church for $5 per day (round trip). We strongly recommend you purchase a ticket for the bus at the registration table. You can walk to the Co-Cathedral but please remember you will need to carry your gown with you on Friday and you will need to have your white shoes. Gowns can not be worn while walking to the church. Saturday mass is in conjunction with the regular mass time. Parking will also be limited as parishioners will be using the parking lot. Once again strongly recommend you reserve a spot on the bus. The buses will make multiple trips to the church.

Tour information is available. Some tours are free of charge. Check out the flyer!
