Watch Parties

Watch Parties are a great way to bridge the gap between virtual conference attendance and in-person fellowship.

Watch parties allow for virtual attendees to experience the fellowship of Catholic sisters and the blessing of conference events, while respecting health and safety concerns and alleviating travel costs.

Watch Parties are hosted in  churches, homes, even event spaces! The choice is up to you.

To join a Watch Party: 

  1. Register as an Online attendee (chose "Watch it online"), and then choose your Watch Party from the next drop down list. 

  2. Connect with your host, so you stay in the loop about any needs or changes about your event.

  3. Volunteer to bring food; help set up or clean up; test technology; or promote! Ask your host what she needs to make the Watch Party run smoothly. These parties depend on the generous efforts of volunteer hosts; help make it a rewarding experience for them!

  4. Pray for the conference, for your host, and for the other guests joining you.

  5. Check in with your host shortly before the conference to make sure things are on track.

  6. Enjoy!

Check back frequently as we will add more as soon as hosts volunteer.

Or, consider hosting a Watch Party yourself!

Why do Watch Party guests need to register?

To keep registration fees affordable for all, we ask all participants to register. Costs associated with bringing in speakers and online platforms which require additional trained professionals are just a part of the online experience that is being offered. These special events take several months of planning/organizing on the part of several women. When Watch Party attendees register, it tells us how many women are attending, which is very important to us, and helps us make informed decisions for future conferences; it also keeps the conference going and affordable for everyone. 

 

Watch Party hosts also receive kits of conference materials and attendee gifts for which we need an accurate count. Registered online attendees, both from-home and at Watch Parties, are entered into a $250 raffle drawing!

To Host a Watch Party:

Email Carol Brown at Carol@SaltandLightRadio.com and ask to have your event added to the Registration list!

Interested in hosting but Not sure where to start?

  1. Choose a space.  Talk to your parish about using a dining room or fellowship hall; open your home; rent a theatre.  

  2. Email Carol Brown to have your event added to the registration options.

  3. Plan for hospitality. Will you provide refreshments, cater, or go potluck style?  

  4. Invite guests. Ensure each guest registers; there is still a cost to the conference. Ask your guests to choose "Watch it Online" during registration and select your Watch Party from the list. The fee for online attendees is $29.  Carol can provide you with promotional materials and graphics to help promote your event!

  5. Recruit Help. Many women are happy to help prepare a space, bring goodies, or clean up. Don't be shy asking for help!

  6. Prepare.  Test your media setup in advance! Make sure your guests know details of timing, location, and food.

  7. Pray for your event, and your guests by name.

  8. Check in with your guests in the days before hand to confirm their plans.

  9. Enjoy!
