44th National Kolping Convention

St. Charles, Missouri   •   September 6–8, 2024

The National Kolping Society is excited to host the 44th National Kolping Convention in St. Charles, Missouri’s first State capital.  This location was chosen to honor our first Kolping family, founded in St. Louis in 1856.  Unlike former conventions, this one is hosted by our National Kolping Society and is only possible due to the work of Kolping members around the country.

Registration cost will be $200/person and $100/ family member under 16 years of age.  Deadline for registrations is July 15, 2024.   You can download the pdf form below (under the Arch picture.)

We are fortunate to have booked the Embassy Suites in St. Charles, with room rates of $170/night, with a 2-night minimum stay (taxes not included.). This venue is located approximately 10 miles from the St. Louis airport, a quick 15 minute drive.  Please make your hotel reservations directly with the Embassy Suites in St. Charles, Missouri by AUGUST 1, 2024.  To reserve online, click: HOTEL WEBSITE or by phone: Hilton Reservations, 800-774-1500. Use code “92Q” to get the group rate.  


Below is a brief overview of the schedule of events:

  • Friday, September 6th
    • Board Meeting and Welcome Reception in the evening
  • Saturday, September 7th
    • Mass at hotel
    • Delegate meeting and presentations (all day)

Since this is a National Kolping event, we are encouraging members and Kolping families to consider taking out an ad in our program booklet. It’s a wonderful souvenir and memory. Participating at the convention—as a delegate or non-delegate—helps us ensure the vitality of our Kolping organizations. It is a time to (re)make acquaintances, share ideas and plan future programs, and, of course, have fun!

We hope you can make it!
