This year, SEEK24 is in St. Louis, Missouri! Join us, January 1-5th, as we head to the Show Me State to connect with thousands of people seeking to hear the call and live differently.
Christ calls every Catholic to the mission of evangelization. The Making Missionary Disciples (MMD) Track at SEEK24 dives into topics specific to living as a missionary disciple in your parish, household, and community. You’re welcome to attend the MMD talks in the morning or choose to attend the many other collegiate options – either way, you won’t want to miss the iconic moments of SEEK24: daily Mass, evening keynotes, and inspiring entertainment!
What to expect:
You’ll be among a few thousand other parishioners and about 10,000 lively college students who will fan into flame hope in the future of the Church and the world. You’ll hear from world class speakers, have daily opportunities for prayer, sacraments, fellowship, and entertainment. No matter whether you’re a long-term or brand-new follower of Jesus, a teacher of RCIA or a student in it; SEEK is for you.
As a part of SEEK23, you will:
You’re always being called deeper into a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church – come and see what’s next!
Experience truth, beauty, and goodness; hear from renowned speakers, events, entertainment, sponsors and more! Find out what it means to Be the Light.
We are not made to be alone! Connect with peers, come together with the greater Church, and journey together.
Judah and the Lion
Nashville-based Judah and the Lion, formed in 2011 and comprised of Judah Akers and Brian Macdonald, have consistently achieved success in the music industry, with their albums regularly appearing on multiple Billboard lists. Their unique and captivating sound resulted in the platinum hit “Take It All Back” in 2016, which topped the Alternative Songs chart. This success was followed by recognition as iHeart Music’s Best New Alternative Rock Artist of the Year in 2018. Their latest album, ‘Revival’ (2022), embodies the group’s energy and spirit. With their compelling mix of Americana, folk, and alternative rock Judah and the Lion continue to energize audiences with their live performances.
Don’t miss this opportunity to seek God with thousands of Catholics in the same venue Saint Pope John Paul II visited in 1999 and said, “Only if you are one with Jesus can you share his light and be a light to the world. Are you ready for this?”

Frequently Asked Questions
SEEK24 is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri and we will be there! We will not be hosting a SEEK Where You Are at St. James this year. Join us January 1-5th – next year SEEK will be even farther away so if you’ve been wanting to go in person, this is a great year to make it happen!
SEEK24 is for everyone. That means you.
Anyone is welcome to go to SEEK24 with us.
Yes! It is so fun to see kids there and there is babysitting if you want to get to the talks on your own. Your kids can join us for anything at SEEK24 and if you opt them into babysitting, they can still join us for Mass in the mornings, keynotes, and entertainment at night; though, their favorite part is usually collecting as many stickers as they can from all the sponsors and vendors in Mission Way. The St. James sticker collecting record is 64! To enter into the convention center and pass through security, each person (including children) will need an Event Pass. Spouses and children can be added to your registration below. The following are the costs for each child, by age:
-Spouse and guests 18+: $233
-Child aged 0-2: $0
-Child aged 3-12: $65
-Child aged 13-17: $200
Childcare will be available each full day of the conference (January 2 – 4) from 8 am to 5 pm. Childcare services are open to all children aged 18 months to 10 years, while space permits. Additional registration through our partner vendor is required. Details will be sent to those who opt-in during their SEEK registration. Cost: $60 for 1 child, $120 for 2+ children for all 3 days of care. This cost for the service is in addition to the conference registration fee for children aged 3 and up. The cost includes babysitting for all three days. Day passes are not available. FOCUS works to subsidize 80-90% of the cost of this service to ensure our families can experience SEEK.
Since we are a parish with FOCUS missionaries, we get a 30% discount off the early bird pricing! To attend all 5 days of SEEK24 (entertainment and lunches included) is only $233!
Matt and Sarra have scored us a block of rooms at the Embassy Suites right next to the convention center for $117 a night which will include breakfast and two happy hour drinks each evening. The rooms at the suites are plenty big for some air mattresses if you want to save and bunk with a friend or bring your kids! We would never want cost to be a reason you miss out on an encounter with Christ and the truth, beauty, and goodness of his Church. If you require financial assistance in order to attend, please do not hesitate to reach out to Matt Marcheschi – firstname.lastname@example.org
Please register by completing the registration form below. If you have a specific roommate in mind, please make sure to note that in the registration. If you find out a friend is going after you register, please email Matt Marcheschi – email@example.com
- Entrance to all conference sessions and keynotes
- Lunch for each full day of the conference
- Opportunities for Mass, the sacraments, and adoration with fellow attendees
- A chance to explore unique service/vocation opportunities presented by sponsors

It might be worth it for you to buy full or half-day passes through the SEEK24 website. Half-day passes are good for Monday and Friday; January 1st and 5th, but you’ll need a full-day pass to get into Tuesday-Thursday. More information on that can be found here. If you work remotely and want to work from the hotel a few hours a day and duck in and out of the conference, the best bang for your buck would be to register below for the full 5-day event pass which will allow you in and out of SEEK24 as much as you want all week.
This is definitely a possibility! Make sure to note in your registration if you’d like to ride with someone else or if you’re planning to drive and want company. We will definitely be letting you know our travel plans so we can caravan down together. Don’t feel like driving? The Amtrak goes from Chicago to St. Louis! Last year, tickets were ~$50 each way and about the same travel time. You’ll have to coordinate that on your own but for what it’s worth, we think that sounds like a lot of fun!
