The keynote speaker is Adrienne Curry of Christ the King Parish in Lexington, Ky. Curry, who holds a master’s degree in divinity, currently serves as pastoral associate for parish social ministry at Christ the King.

Prior to coming to Lexington in 2012, Curry worked for 15 years in various positions for Catholic Relief Services and the Office for Peace and Justice in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
