36th NORTHERN CONGRESS AT THE PIQUA JVS

Once again the Northern Congress will be held at the Joint Vocational School on Looney Road on the northern edge of Piqua.  Except for the first few years, the JVS has been home to the Congress each September.  The school is easy to find (just 1/2 mile off I-75) with ample parking and easy accessibility.  The lecture room is perfect for  prayer and the keynote address while the expanded dining area is perfect for morning coffee and lunch and also has a spacious area for the exhibits.  The classrooms of various sizes work well for the break-out workshops.  Each year the staff of the JVS is most gracious and helpful.  See the brochure for the Sept. 17 Congress online at http://www.catholiccincinnati.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/2011CongressBrochure.pdf.
