ELM takes place during four half-day (morning) sessions. Each morning begins at 8:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast followed by a brief prayer service and three major presentations/activities. The day concludes with lunch and discussion. Lunch is generally finished by 1:15 p.m.

On the final day of the program (Thursday), a brief Commissioning Service takes place to conclude ELM, along with a celebratory lunch. All sessions and activities, including breakfast and lunch, take place in the D’Arcy Great Room, part of the LaGrippe Pastoral Center adjacent to Sancta Alberta Chapel.
